We can recall a memory when the sky was blue, the ground was lush, and we were happy. This abstract refences the unique features of scenery enjoying complete contentment. When there is a clear sky and lush vegetation, life is blooming all around us and bringing hope for the future. Richard asks the viewer to rejoice in these moments, when there is not only an ease in nature but also an ease in self, for surely fall and winter will come. The promise of spring continues the cycles of seasons much like the cycles in human nature.
