The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth, One is nearer God's Heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth.

Kiss of the sun for pardon. Song of the birds for mirth. You're closer to God's heart in a garden than any place else on earth.

A Quote by Dorothy Frances Gurney on angels, birds, earth, garden, god, heart, kiss, songs, and world

The Lord God planted a garden In the first white days of the world, And he set there an angel warden In a garment of light enfurled. The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the bird for mirth, One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth.

A wonderful bird is the pelican, His bill will hold more than his belican. He can take in his beak Food enough for a week, But I'm damned if I see how the helican.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on beginning, birds, concern, death, funerals, and planning

Paraphrased: When Chuang Tzu was about to die, his disciples began planning a splendid funeral. However some disciples expressed concern that given a particular arrangement, birds and kites would eat his remains. Chuang Tzu replied, "Well, above ground I shall be eaten by crows and kites, below it by ants and worms. What do you have against birds?"

A Quote by Christopher Columbus on birds and kindness

The Admiral says that he never beheld so fair a thing: trees all along the river, beautiful and green, and different from ours, with flowers and fruits each according to their kind, many birds and little birds which sing very sweetly.

A Quote by Christina Georgina Rossetti on birds, birthday, gold, heart, life, love, and work

A Birthday

My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a watered shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in a halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these,
Because my love is come to me.
Raise me a dais of silk and down;
Hang it with vair and purple dyes;
Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys;
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.

Christina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)
