Spring Song

Dogwood buds, birdsong, and nineteen crocuses.
One wonders, in spring, how anyone focuses.

~EMP, 3/11/10

I know it's technically not spring yet, but the weather certainly seems like it! And so the snippets of spring poetry have begun to bloom in my journal...

One wonders indeed! Definitely easy to get swept up in the beauty of it all!

And it's come so suddenly this year! The snow piles were like mountains here just a week ago -- there are still some big ones that haven't fully melted yet. I couldn't believe it when we spotted crocuses on the way to the library today. And yes, I did count them. Nineteen. :-)
