Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
darling little apricots
(~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn”)
Guess who else is digging Spring?
A Young Lady who’s birthday falls not long after Easter!
So we celebrated in true Spring style
with colors galore
and Petit Princes who wanted to arrange things just so
and a medley of baking
and merry making.
Sir (fresh off the plane from New York) sits the children in a circle on the grass and asks them, “What’s more important? The treasure or the hunt?”
“The huuuuuunt!” they all yell running off for the first clue.
To those Spring hearts who laugh forth their ancient gladness.
