    A little Poetry to start you month off right

    A poem by Algernon Charles Swinburne

    The Spring Begins

    For winter's rains and ruins are over,
    The days dividing lover and lover,
    The light that loses, the night that wins;
    And time remembered is grief forgotten,
    And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
    And in green underwood and cover
    Blossom by blossom the spring begins.
