Spring Rose

"There is simply the rose;
it is perfect in every moment of its existence.
Before a leaf-bud has burst, its whole life acts;
in the full-blown flower there is no more; in the leafless root there is no less.
Its nature is satisfied, and it satisfies nature, in all moments alike.
But man postpones, or remembers;
he does not live in the present,
but with a reverted eye laments the past,
or, heedless of the riches that surround him, stands on tiptoe to foresee the future.
He cannot be happy and strong until he too lives with nature in the present,
above time."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
