Birthday of Robert Browning (1812 - 1889)
May 7

In Pippa Passes, Browning captures a moment of dawn gratitude:

The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn:
God's in His heaven—
All's right with the world!
