March goes out…

First primroses, Stuttgart, March 31, 2016, enclos*ure

Yesterday was chilly, damp, and brown. Today, it’s warm and sunny, and I found primroses in the woods.

Wagtail smart in his belted blue,
Primrose paying her gold ere due,—
(Out upon Winter! Down with Sorrow!)
These are the things that I know are true.

— Louise Imogen Guiney, from “Firstlings
