It is World Poetry Day today. Here’s a jaunty poem from Emily Dickinson for you, celebrating the arrival of Spring. Enjoy! 🙂
I love my husband, my family, my friends and my life in Edinburgh. I have two blogs - LeapingTracks about my passion for music; and LeapingLife about my passion for everything else!

With tumbled hair of swarms of bees,
And flower-robes dancing in the breeze,
With sweet, unsteady lotus-glances,
Intoxicated, Spring advances.
