February Florals Day 20: The Bright Bouquet

The springtime's pallid landscape
Will glow like bright bouquet,
Though drifted deep in parian
The village lies to-day.

The lilacs, bending many a year,
With purple load will hang:
The bees will not forget the tune
Their old forefathers sang.

The rose will redden in the bog,
The aster on the hill
Her everlasting fashion set,
And covenant gentians frill,

Till summer folds her miracle
As women do their gown,
Or priests adjust the symbols
When sacrament is done.
-Emily Dickinson, LXXIII

Where I live in Indiana we have just beaten the record with over 51 inches of snow this year!  
We are so ready for spring it hurts.  

"Absence makes the heart grow fonder."  Yes
