The fields are snowbound no longer;
There are little blue lakes and flags of tenderest green.
The snow has been caught up into the sky--
So many white clouds--and the blue of the sky is cold.
Now the sun walks in the forest,
He touches the bows and stems with his golden fingers;
They shiver, and wake from slumber.
Over the barren branches he shakes his yellow curls.
Yet is the forest full of the sound of tears....
A wind dances over the fields.
Shrill and clear the sound of her waking laughter,
Yet the little blue lakes tremble
And the flags of tenderest green bend and quiver.

Very Early Spring by Katherine Mansfield

Sorry I'm late. Thunderstorms kept my internet down.

The tree pollen count has been high this last week, but the weekend rain has washed the air clean, at least for a day or two.

A perfect description of early spring. I can feel it and see it
