Welcome, Spring!

Claude Monet, The Artist's Garden at Giverny, ca. 1900
Yale University Art Gallery

Beneath the crisp and wintry carpet hid
A million buds but stay their blossoming; 
And trustful birds have built their nests amid
The shuddering boughs, and only wait to sing
Till one soft shower from the south shall bid,
And hither tempt the pilgrim steps of Spring.
Robert Bridges, The Growth of Love. Sonnet vi.
