The 1st of March

Temperature: -6C (21.2F)
The sun is not quite breaking through the clouds yet, but it's there. The wind is calm; the woods are quiet.


I wonder if the sap is stirring yet,
If wintry birds are dreaming of a mate,
If frozen snowdrops feel as yet the sun
And crocus fires are kindling one by one:
Sing robin, sing;
I still am sore in doubt concerning Spring.

~ Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
