A Lark in the Garden, with Pictures


"O the green things growing, the green things growing,
The faint sweet smell of the green things growing!
I should like to live, whether I smile or grieve,
Just to watch the happy life of my green things growing."
-   Dinah Maria Mulock Craik,

Beautiful picture and I loved the poem. Ms Craik appeared as a clue in a crossword puzzle the other day and I had planned to look her up as she was new to me. Now I really want to read more of her work.

Sallie, you inspired me to google Ms Craik too, and I was surprised at the results - there is an e-book available which I have downloaded.
John Halifax, Gentleman - and access to her poetry. Thank you for that!
