The embroidery of spring has begun.
These woods, exuberant
and swelling with vigorous life,
cannot be stopped; are again
painting with a palette of pastels.
turning of the season;
seen only when you walk
through the open the door.
Why so extravagant, so intricate?
More than just order and function,
it also includes the grace of beauty.
Witness this living tapestry.
The show has already begun;
traced by the Creator's hand,
new for you each day.
