When winter passed, she came again,
And her song released the sudden spring,
Like rising lark, and falling rain,
And melting water bubbling.
He saw the elven-flowers spring
About her feet, and healed again
He longed by her to dance and sing
Upon the grass untroubling."
~Excerpt from writing by JRR Tolkien
Today temps are rising into the 60’s after a week of sub-zero temps…alas, it feels like Sudden Spring!
