Love makes every season turn

Love makes every season turn

As chilly and bleak as the end of winter may seem, there is much anticipation as signs of spring turn up everywhere. Late winter is special too. Take a moment, bundle up and head our way to experience the last cozy month of winter and take a walk in one of our many wonderful conservation areas.

SPRING SONG
Don’t hurry spring
the wind still trembles
in the empty trees
and dead geraniums stand still
in Spanish Harlem window boxes.
Another week perhaps
when skaters leave the pond.  Now for awhile longer
we can have the park to ourselves.
I need a while more with you just now,
there are some things
I don’t yet know.  Do you like the color blue
do I worry you when I frown
where were you
when I was growing up and needed somebody?
