Spring by tradition begins the renewal both of ourselves and of nature. The very sound of the word suggests impetus and movement and people do seem taken with the notion that the year’s journey is about to begin. The days become longer and warmer, and the fresh green of new growth begins to show itself. All manner of life start to busy itself with activities and plans.
In this collection of poetry, Wordsworth, Browning, Kipling, and Yeats are joined by Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Daniel Sheehan, Amy Lowell, Christina Rossetti, and others, all of whom bring words of insight, charm, and emotion. It’s a rich and rewarding combination.
