sunday simplicity #97 - love and friendship

Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree --
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild rose-briar is sweet in spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly's sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He still may leave thy garland green.

- Emily Bronte


  1. Love that you are featuring some poetry!

    1. Thanks Carole! It gives me an extra little challenge to find a picture and poem or quote that go together well. I love the Brontes.
