SPRING – God’s gift to us every year – Vivaldi’s „SPRING” + a poem

Because the internet makes us such a globalcommunity, we can celebrate spring already with those European countries  who  celebrate on March 1st, rather than March 21st, as the official date for  spring.  The sooner the better!

…especially for those of us that live far, far, far above the equator. Poem from http://www.love-poems.me.uk/

Daffodils a poem
by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
