Constable's clouds

As I walked along this country lane near Churchtown, Lancashire, cow parsley and may blossom lining my way, I looked up at the clouds and understood why the English painter, John Constable, spent much of his life trying to capture their transient beauty.

"Spring goeth all in white,
Crowned with milk-white may:
In fleecy flocks of light
O'er heaven the white clouds stray."
Robert Seymour Bridges (1844-1930), English poet
