Guest at Sunday Songs and Rhymes

  Time for a new challenge at Sunday Songs and Rhymes over at The Outlawz and we are inspired by the following verse!  

Just above the meadow
The cuckoo bird flies flapping
Its wings to perch in a tree
To sing its song of spring
Song of love for flowers and
Butterflies and surly bees

The sprouting leaves in
The wind flutter softly lending
Music to the cuckoo's song
In the sultry afternoon
The stream too sings with the
Cuckoo as it moves along

by Anil Kumar Panda

As I read this poem, I couldn't help but think about my grandparents and all the clocks in their home!  This immediately inspired my page!  The flowers and butterflies in the Flower Butterfly Border Greyscale - Digital Stamp from Creative art Design Studio was the perfect image to frame out this lovely photo for my heirloom family history/art journal I am currently creating!  (More on that in a future post!)
