Sweet Spring is your

There was a certain something in the air when I walked out of the house this morning.  A certain crispness.  The snow is almost all melted.  It was actually comfortable with just a light fleece and no heavy coat.  Maybe Spring is actually coming!

I attended the end of the Geohazards' Conference this morning.  At least the lectures were more relevant to what I will be doing in the future.  And, on my way home I took this photo on the University at Buffalo North Campus:

The pond is still frozen over, but there is a promise of Spring in the yellowing branches that will soon sprout out with leaves.  Since I really don't have a lot to write about, I thought I would share one of my favourite poems by e.e. cummings: "Sweet spring is your"

"sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love"

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there's nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

"sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love"

Tomorrow there isn't a lot to do other than my meeting for EMS in the morning.  We'll see if anything else develops during the day... until then!

I remember those days in Montana when you knew spring was in the air and the good feeling that although it might snow again, it could be the last snow of the season; hoping April brings warmer temps and spring blossoming!!!

What a happy joyous lyrical poem of Spring.  e.e. cummings is new to my repertoire of poets.  I have only recently, 18 months ago, read some of his works along with Seamus Heaney and his poem of The School Bag.  Much to my shame but delight too.  Ted Hughes is another wonderful poet on my list of 'new to me' poets.
I enjoyed this entry, but then I love poetry and it warms my heart to read how others feel about life as they transpose what they see and feel to the written word.
Thank you for todays entry Veronica.  I hope spring speeds your way soon.  I already have lots of signs of it here in the Lakes.
