Springtime is here and the earth is alive with the beauty and majesty of the Lord! All around the world is budding, blooming, blossoming, and buzzing. I invite you to pour yourself a tall glass of sweet iced tea, take a blanket outside on the green grass – or if it’s rainy, stay inside and queue up Vivaldi’s La primavera – and read aloud some lovely spring poetry. (Please click on the title or picture of the poet to read each poem.)
