Spring has finally arrived! It's been in the 70s the last couple days and April showers are hitting us hard now! The sky is dark and we've had tons of rain, thunder, and lightning today, and hail too!
Wanted to pass along this great poem that my old boss Super Sue passed along. Get out there and enjoy spring!
"Philosophy in Warm Weather"
are open, and we move so easily
through the rooms. Cats roll
on the sunny rugs, and a clumsy wasp
climbs the pane, pausing
to rub a leg over her head.
All around physical life reconvenes.
The molecules of our bodies must love
to exist: they whirl in circles
and seem to begrudge us nothing.
Heat, Horatio, heat makes them
put this antic disposition on!
This year's brown spider
sways over the door as I come
and go. A single poppy shouts
from the far field, and the crow,
beyond alarm, goes right on
pulling up the corn.
-- Jane Kenyon, from The Boat of Quiet Hours
