Celebrating the first full day of Spring!
We can’t let the good things pass us by during these strange days. Take a moment and enjoy the beauty of this new season.
Poetry: Swifts by Anne Stevenson
Spring comes little, a little. All April it rains.
The new leaves stick in their fists; new ferns still fiddleheads.
But one day the swifts are back. Face to the sun like a child
You shout, ‘The swifts are back!’

Poetry: Lines Written in Early Spring by William Wordsworth
I heard a thousand blended notes,
While in a grove I sat reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to mind.

Poetry: More Than Enough by Marge Pierce
The first lily of June opens its red mouth.
All over the sand road where we walk
multiflora Rosa climbs trees cascading
