The March of the Spring

Although the traditional start of spring is March 21st, there is something refreshingly hopeful about the first day of a new month that welcomes within it a new season – particularly one that offers so much potential for birth and rebirth. So for this reason, we would like to celebrate the start of spring today, and simultaneously say Hapus Dydd Gwyl Dewi – Happy St. David’s Day to our Welsh friends.

There’s the subtlest glimmer of light,
Hinting of warmth to come.
Gently revealing its willingness,
Through the spectre of the sun.

Inviting the company
Of fellow ochre.

“Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.”

“Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest.
The soul, uneasy, and confin’d from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.”
