The Spring Wind

Princess and I have decided to have a short "Spring Break" so we had no school today.
Instead we played and dreamed and sang and danced and drew and read. The only thing that's left to do is jump into our bed!



Here's a little poem we enjoyed reading today:

The Spring Wind

The summer wind
is soft and sweet
the winter wind is strong
the autumn wind is mischievous
and sweeps the leaves along.

The wind I love best
comes gently after the rain
smelling of spring and growing things
brushing the world with feathery wings
while everything glistens,and everything sings
in the spring wind
after the rain.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
