And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind ...

“Listen easy, you can hear God calling
Walking barefoot by the stream …
And the time will be our time
And the grass won’t pay no mind …

The moment we’re living is now
Now now now now now now now…

And the time will be our time
And the grass won’t pay no mind
No the grass won’t pay no mind.”

~ “And The Grass Won’t Pay No Mind”
~ Words & Music by Neil Diamond
~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
      ~ 1969

And the grass won’t pay no mind on a sweet and warm late spring evening as the light of sunset filters through the lush, tall grass with a tranquil hush in early June at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Spring's Picture Window ...

“To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.”
                   ~ Walt Whitman
                          ~ 1819-1892
A window in the historic Bogert’s Covered Bridge in Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, perfectly frames the sweetness of spring on a beautiful May evening as the Little Lehigh Creek flows gently beneath the bridge.

Bogert’s Covered Bridge spans 145 feet over the Little Lehigh Creek.

Built in 1841, its history traces back to the mid-1700s when the Bogert family moved into a log cabin next to the future site of the bridge. It is the oldest covered bridge in Lehigh County and among the oldest in the country. It is open only to pedestrian and bicycle traffic, as well as the occasional rider on horseback.

Bogert’s Covered Bridge is a wooden Burr Truss bridge with vertical plank siding and a gable roof. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

Yee Haw ! ...

“That it will never come again is what makes life sweet. Dwell in possibility. Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.”
                    ~ Emily Dickinson
                          ~ 1830-1886
A female common merganser duck shows off her wingspan and seems to say “Yee Haw!” as she relishes the beauty of an early September afternoon at Budd M. Jones Municipal Park, Belvidere, New Jersey.
