BW12: Spring Fling or Autumn Optimism

  • Read a book with flowers or leaves on the cover.
  • Read a book with the colors of spring or autumn on the cover 
  • Read a book with Spring or Autumn in the title
  • Read a book about a Spring or Autumn Fling. (oh la la)
  • Read a book about life beginning.
  • Read a book about rebirth.
  • Read a book about life changing. 
  • Read a book about wine or with wine on the cover 
  • Read a book with any of the words from the poem below on the cover


Spring And Autumn.


Thomas Moore 

Every season hath its pleasures;
Spring may boast her flowery prime,
Yet the vineyard's ruby treasures
Brighten Autumn's soberer time.
So Life's year begins and closes;
Days tho' shortening still can shine;
What tho' youth gave love and roses,
Age still leaves us friends and wine.

Phillis, when she might have caught me,
All the Spring looked coy and shy,
Yet herself in Autumn sought me,
When the flowers were all gone by.
Ah, too late;--she found her lover
Calm and free beneath his vine,
Drinking to the Spring-time over,
In his best autumnal wine.

Thus may we, as years are flying,
To their flight our pleasures suit,
Nor regret the blossoms dying,
While we still may taste the fruit,
Oh, while days like this are ours,
Where's the lip that dares repine?
Spring may take our loves and flowers,
So Autumn leaves us friends and wine.
