Spring In January

Another unusually warm January day stirs the prairie wilds and back yard gardens to life. Siberian Elms on the Llano Estacado plain show first signs of buds. Trees in village neighborhoods follow suit. Daffodils venture delicate blades of green shoots into the comfort of January sunlight. Last remnants of autumn foliage provide welcome hugs to the new arrivals. Austrian pines shed their winter decorations of bristly pine cones and Silver Maples sing serenades of spring renewal. At the town lake a noisy gathering of geese rejoices in the balmy mid-winter climes.

How might one lay to rest this glorious day? The words of the indomitable Bard of Avon echo in my heart, “Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.”
