Robert Frost A Prayer In Spring

Hello dear readers!
Today let's read the popular poem A Prayer in Spring by Robert Frost. The poem makes us open our hearts and souls to love which is everywhere around us in spring.
To my mind, there are some difficult phrases in this poem, so you can find  to explain the meanings of some of them in the Vocabulary section .The video has good pictures to help learners to understand the context of difficult lines . What is more, it is a good chance to do a shadow practice: use the subtitles and try to imitate the voice of the reciter. So, let's read and enjoy the poem and practice English!

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day; 
And give us not to think so far away 
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here 
All simply in the springing of the year.

Reading:My April Lady by Henry Van Dyke

painter Howard Rogers
Hello,dear readers!
April has come and Love is everywhere around us! This lovely April poem is really worth reading just now!
So, let's read and enjoy!

My April Lady by Henry Van Dyke

When down the stair at morning
The sunbeams round her float,
Sweet rivulets of laughter
Are bubbling in her throat;
The gladness of her greeting
Is gold without alloy;
And in the morning sunlight
I think her name is Joy.
