I heard the peepers last night when I took the dogs out. The daffodils have sent up shoots, and the air, while still cold, is cold-tinged-with-warm, instead of warm-tinged-with-cold.
I don't care what the calendar, the almanac, or the weathermen say...Spring is here.

One swallow does not make a summer,
but one skein of geese,
cleaving the murk of March thaw,
is the Spring.
