Do my eyes deceive me?
Is that GREEN I see?
Is that living, breathing
spring-is-coming GREEN?!

I felt like a lost ship approaching land
when I spotted this haven of green
amidst the brown and sleepy woods.
The long, cold winters
make me deeply appreciate
every speck of spring I can find.

We started the month here
with a giant snow storm,
and it’s winding down
with a patch of glorious green…
flinging the door wide open
to usher in a new season.

Welcome back!
