A March Glee

Oh, Spring is surely coming, Her couriers fill the air; Each morn are new arrivals, Each night her ways prepare; I scent her fragrant garments, Her foot is on the stair. – John Burroughs, “A March Glee” Photo by me: Henri Matisse, Olive Trees at Collioure, 1906. at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

High Meadow Farm
