On Spring

812
Emily Dickinson

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here

P1060086

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

P1060075

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

P1050497

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —

P1060072

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

Wishing you a Happy Spring (a bit late, I know!).  I hope it is a season full of creativity, gratitude and joy.
