In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

When we would cruise through the mall back in the ’00s, we would hit up American Eagle, Hot Topic and Wet Seal. All that shopping would tire us out, and we wouldn’t pass up making a snack stop at Auntie Anne’s for a mouthwatering butter-glazed pretzel.

 

In honor of their 30th birthday, they’ve launched a pretzel themed clothing line that’s got all the mall nostalgia you could ever need.   Auntie Ann partnered up with six different artists for it’s new For the Love of Pretzels collection, including all kinds of adorable accessories and apparel such as hoodies, tees, and totes.

 

It gets even better though. All the profits made from the collection will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, that raises funds for children with cancer. Fans can now show their love of Auntie Anne’s while contributing to an important cause at the same time.

 

The collection intentionally does not have brand written all over it, and every artist was encouraged to make pieces that they would want to wear themselves.  The effort has already raised an entire $3.7 million to help fight childhood cancer. Who wouldn’t want to buy such awesome apparel?
