Omar Khayyam and Spring

It's the first day of April, April Fool's Day, and I certainly did feel fooled when I woke up.  After a fairly nice Easter weekend, we had a cold snap, and now there is a light dusting of snow on the ground. This poem by Omar Khayyam made me feel a little better. I hope it boosts your springtime spirits, too.

"Come, fill the Cup, and in the Fire of Spring
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly--and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing."
-  Omar Khayyám

Lovely indeed Jane Marie, but it doesn't help! I still want spring to arrive, and soon!
