17th Century

Excerpt Tuesday – more lines from “The World” by Henry Vaughan

Theworld_pIp1Last week I featured the opening lines of the “The World” by Henry Vaughan (1622-1695) and this week I’ve decided to keep going with the first stanza of this classic poem. Read the whole poem here. Photograph (of a snowdrift of petals from my first spring in Boston) and composition by me.
