Happy Spring Day!!!

"if ever there were a spring day so perfect.
so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze
that it made you want to throw open
all the windows in the house
and unlatch the door to the canary's cage,
indeed, rip the little door from its jamb,

a day when the cool brick paths
and the garden bursting with peonies
seemed so etched in sunlight
that you felt like taking a hammer to the glass paperweight
on the living room end table,

releasing its inhabitants from their
snow-covered cottage
so they could walk out holding hands and squinting
into this larger dome of blue and white,

today is that kind of a day."

-Billy Collins-
