When spring comes along, the winter-weary heart rejoices.
No matter whether the day is sunny and warm, the very personification of the new season—or dreary and cold, with sleet and snow pouring from a sullen sky. What's important is that winter has been left behind and is already fading in our memory's rearview mirror.
Spring has arrived, the word itself setting mood and direction. One does spring up, after all…so it only follows that we're instantly uplifted. Dark spirits are lightened, ennui metamorphoses into energy, despondency becomes hope. There is vernal magic afoot, and even if we can't see it with our eyes, we feel it stirring in our DNA.
The spheres have danced their timeless waltz. Earth has spun and whirled, bowed to the sun, tilted that necessary degree as it crossed the celestial equator. Daylight now rules over darkness.
Spring is here and our souls rejoice in gladdened song!
