American Snaps #7: Spring and its thousand blended notes

by awindram


New York after the equinox, March 2016

“Spring has many American faces. There are
cities where it will come and go in a day and counties where it hangs around and never quite gets there. Summer is drawn blinds in Louisiana, long winds in Wyoming, shade of elms and maples in New England.”
Archibald MacLeish

“I heard a thousand blended notes,
While in a grove I sate reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to the mind.”
Wordsworth – Lines Written in Early Spring
