Even as our beloved MICDS campus remains closed, spring has blossomed, bringing birds, bees, flowers and lush greenery back to the School’s grounds. Although most of us are not able to experience the daily unfolding of this beautiful time of year on campus, we wanted to give you a glimpse of a single spring day at MICDS.
Watch below to see the sights and sounds of our campus in spring and listen to Robert Frost’s A Prayer in Spring recited by Head of School Jay Rainey.
A Prayer in Spring
by Robert Frost
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.
