See how Spring opens with disabling cold,SEE HOW SPRING OPENS by Gerard Manley Hopkins
And hunting winds and the long-lying snow.
Is it a wonder if the buds are slow?
Or where is strength to make the leaf unfold?
Chilling remembrance of my days of old
Afflicts no less, yet what I hope may blow,
That seed which the good sower once did sow,
So loading with obstruction that threshold
Which should ere now have led my feet to the field.
It is the waste done in unreticent youth
Which makes so small the promise of that yield
That I may win with late-learnt skill uncouth
From furrows of the poor and stinting weald.
Therefore how bitter, and learnt how late, the truth!
also ricola cough drops are just about the cutest food thing in the universe??? they contain mallow, elder flower, wild thyme, hyssop, peppermint, lemon balm, horehound, linden, and sage, and as if all that isnt cute enough, when you unwrap them, you find that they are also gently wrapped in a small rectangle of wax paper.
my lips are strangely chapped in ways that i cannot begin to describe there is like a ring of chap around my mouth however it seems to run in the center, the equator if you will, of my mouth, and this is the only chapped part, and the “tropics” of my mouth are just normal. it feels weird and this must end at once but alas

I strongly dislike this idea that progression in countries is measured by their imitation of western society.
