Happy first day of spring!

Understand, I’ll slip quietly
away from the noisy crowd
when I see the pale
stars rising, blooming, over the oaks.

I’ll pursue solitary pathways
through the pale twilit meadows,
with only this one dream:
You come too.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Happy first day of spring! My favourite season (as if that weren’t already obvious: one, two, three.) 20th March, you might be my favourite day of the year.
