The past few days have been beautiful, a most welcome break from cold weather and the ice storm that came through a little more than a week ago, seemingly to punctuate the end the winter. The ground hog said we were done with winter, and he appears to have been right.
Today's poem, "Late February" by Ted Kooser, looks at the precise moment when winter scoots out of the way and the world opens itself to spring.
Bring on the warm breezes, and baby chicks, and farmers suddenly appearing in their gardens as unexpected as tulips!
