Awake, thou wintery earth - 
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn

Such beautiful words. They sound like a hymn, as I suppose they really are - a hymn to spring.

Yes, and we've been needing something like a hymn to conjure up some spring here. It's been such and incredibly slow and chilly season this year.
