Happiest Days

By Edward H. Donnelly

I said to the little children,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And their bright eyes opened wider In innocent amaze.
For their happiness was so perfect,
They did not know it then;
"Oh, no," they said, "there'll be happier days
When we are women and men."

I said to the youth and maiden,
"You are living your happiest days,"
And into their sparkling eyes there crept
A dreamy, far-off gaze;
And their hands sought one another,
And their cheeks flushed rosy red;
" Oh, no," they said, " there'll be happier days
For us when we are wed."

I said to the man and woman,
"You are living your happiest days,"
As they laughingly watched together
Their baby's cunning ways.
"These days are days of labor.
They can hardly be our best;
There'll be happier days when the children are grown,
And we have earned our rest."

I said to the aged couple,
"You are living your happiest days,"
Your children do you honor,
You have won success and praise.
" With a peaceful look they answered,
"God is good to us, that's true: But we think there are happier days for us
In the life we're going to."

Self-professed cake artist and flour child Leslie Vigil is good at what she does. Her edible creations deserve to be photographed and kept in a gallery of delicious pastries. Vigil endeavored to create a new collection called Tapestry Cakes. She used a cool technique in which she used icing as “stitches” to cover cakes with stylized flowers, symmetrical laurel leaf patterns, and little red hearts. The colorful cakes will make you think of Mexican folk dresses. Basically, Vigil has whipped up some deliciously beautiful creations you’re going to appreciate for sure. Bon appétit!

She captioned this one: “Inspired by some of my favorite real life succulents, I created this cement planter filled with ‘black knight’ echeveria, ‘burros tail’ sedum, and ‘red lion’ sempervivum. All in buttercream! Any suggestions for varieties of succulents or cacti I could try? ????????????????”
