SUNDOWN

longfellow



The summer sun is sinking low;
Only the tree-tops redden and glow:
Only the weathercock on the spire
Of the neighboring church is a flame of fire;
All is in shadow below.


O beautiful, awful summer day,
What hast thou given, what taken away?
Life and death, and love and hate,
Homes made happy or desolate,
Hearts made sad or gay!




On the road of life one mile-stone more!
In the book of life one leaf turned o'er!
Like a red seal is the setting sun
On the good and the evil men have done,--
Naught can to-day restore!


here are some pics of the girls last year on this very date!

Peace in Jesus,
Summur

  5. Beautiful pics - there's something about B & W photos that just capture the moment so well.

    Did I ask you this already? -- Are you going to the homeschool book fair in Arlington May 6-7??
