all spring

“The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.” 
― Emily Dickinson

This painting of an iris on a spectacular spring day I gave as a wedding gift a few years ago.
Titled "Wedding Iris", of course. Events in the news lately brought to mind the moment.

never poor

Then Martine said: “So you will be poor now all your life, Babette?” “Poor?” said Babette. She smiled as if to herself. “No, I shall never be poor. I told you that I am a great artist. A great artist, Mesdames, is never poor. We have something, Mesdames, of which other people know nothing.”
