Ahhh, Spring! I absolutely cannot wait for the grass to green, the flowers to bloom, and the birds to sing again. I know I am straying from my regular communication-related posts, but it has felt like such a long winter that I find myself getting impatient for the warmer weather to come our way. I know it will come eventually, but in the meantime, here are some lovely Spring pictures and a beautiful Spring poem to keep us patient.
Very Early Spring, by Katherine Mansfield
There are little blue lakes and flags of tenderest green.
The snow has been caught up into the sky–
So many white clouds–and the blue of the sky is cold.
Now the sun walks in the forest,
He touches the bows and stems with his golden fingers;
They shiver, and wake from slumber.
Over the barren branches he shakes his yellow curls.
Yet is the forest full of the sound of tears….
A wind dances over the fields.
Shrill and clear the sound of her waking laughter,
Yet the little blue lakes tremble
And the flags of tenderest green bend and quiver
