February thaw!!!

Yesterday here in Wisconsin the temperatures reached an all time high of 58 degrees. The February Thaw! Did I see a robin?? Did I see buds on the winter branches? Did I feel a breeze that felt like spring? Were the skies brilliant blue and the sun so bright it hurt your eyes? Did I look at the flower bed and see shoots pushing their way up? Did you see what I saw? Hope springs eternal.
The February sunshine steeps
your boughs
And tints the buds
And swells the leaves within.
William C. Bryant
