Marsh Wild Flowers

Flocks of White Storks Early Spring

When I saw the flock of white birds swimming in Lake Griffin, I wasn't sure what they were.  They turned out to be white storks with black tip wings.  I followed them around the entire lake trying to get a close up range.  They were beautiful when they spread their wide wings and took flight.  The birds were migrating and Lake Griffin was a stopping point for their journey.

Trees "that look at God all day"

THINK that I shall never see
      A poem lovely as a tree.
      A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
      Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
      A tree that looks at God all day,
      And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
      A tree that may in Summer wear
      A nest of robins in her hair;
      Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
      Who intimately lives with rain.
      Poems are made by fools like me,
      But only God can make a tree.
      by: Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)
