February Sunshine

Yesterday, the gray skies disappeared,
cast aside by rays of warm sunshine.
February 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.
