The Passing of Winter’s Woe

February 20, 2011

“February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March.”
     — Dr. J. R. Stockton

First robin, harbinger of spring

“Late February days; and now, at last,
Might you have thought that
Winter’s woe was past;
So fair the sky was and so soft the air.”
     —  William Morris

Spring arrives in discrete moments — primroses, crocuses, robins — pushing through the dormant landscape.
