From the June 1893 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article was later republished in Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896: Mis. 329:1-332:11

MINE is an obstinate penchant for nature in all her moods, and forms a satisfaction with whatever is hers; and which will you name it a weakness or strength? In June nature like a thrifty housewife has gotten the earth in order, and between taking up the white carpets and putting down the green ones, her various apartments were dismally dirty. Spring is my second sweetheart whose voices are sad or glad even as the heart may be restoring in memory the sweet rhythm of unforgotten harmonies, or touching tenderly its tearful tones.
