Hashkedia porachat--the almond is blossoming

I come, I come! ye have called me long;
I come o'er the mountains, with light and song.
Ye may trace my step o'er the waking earth
By the winds which tell of the violet's birth,
By the primrose stars in the shadowy grass,
By the green leaves opening as I pass.
. . .
From "The Voice of Spring" by John Burroughs

How very beautiful! When we were in Holland we saw a painting of almond branches that Van Gogh did. You have the real thing.
