Through the dancing poppies stole A breeze most softly lulling to my soul.  -John Keats

First Day of Spring-2016!

Look at the cherry blossoms!
Their color and scent fall with them.
Are gone forever, yet mindless.
The spring comes again. -Ikkyu

The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also. Harriet -Ann Jacobs
