Youth is Like Spring

by Samuel Butler

Youth is like spring;
an overpraised season,
more remarkable
for biting winds
than genial breezes.

Autumn is the mellower season,
and what we lose in flowers
we more than gain
in fruits. 

As featured on
The Daily Gardener podcast:

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
