Hello and Welcome, Spring!
Spring in 2020 is greeted with its unique place in time: the last spring in the second decade in the new millennium, the third millennium, A.D.
Deep thoughts contemplating our own place in time are undoubtedly merited. Thankfully, in the natural order of things, Spring, despite its unique place in time each year, continues to arrive minus pomp and sobriety, with wild bouquets of fresh air, opened windows, new ideas, and fresh energy!
In celebration of spring and the good things to come, here is Billy Collins’ poem, “Today”, published in Poetry magazine in April, 2000.
