An exquisitely illustrated edition of a timeless poem. Robert Frost’s realistic depictions of rural life, especially of New England in the early twentieth century, are beautifully paired with the art created by Grandma Moses, the artist who epitomizes contemporary folk art. The result is a treasure to be enjoyed the whole year long. In spring, we give thanks for the natural and spiritual joys of the season. Moses’s illustrations complement Frost’s descriptions of the flowers, trees, bees, and other sights and sounds, which evoke a time of renewal and rebirth with illustrations that depict a place of quiet contemplation and endless possibility. A Prayer in Spring is a wonderful gift for lovers of Frost, Moses, poetry, and folk art, as well as for Easter baskets, birthdays, new babies, or for children and adults who can’t wait for the season.

“Keep us here / All simply in the springing of the year,” implores Frost, while the subjects of Moses’ grand vistas are too busy doing things—fishing, shearing sheep, flying kites, plowing the fields—to stop and ponder the pleasure being derived from nature.
