Yesterday, the gray skies disappeared,
cast aside by rays of warm sunshine.
As Williams Cullen Bryant once wrote:
The February sunshine
steeps your boughs and tints the buds
and swells the leaves within.

Of course, today the gray rain returned
along with another blanket of winter's chill.
But it's good to stop and remember
that even as the snow falls
and the winter wind swirls around us,
that somewhere we can't see,
spring is stirring.
