This does not look like spring

This photo was taken on March 19, one day before the vernal equinox and the official start of spring. The scene did not look springlike then, and three weeks later, it is virtually unchanged.

The calendar may insist spring is here, and the light is clear and bright as you would expect from the season, but the snowdrifts and minus temperatures reveal the truth – spring has not yet arrived.

Hearts and minds have grown weary from the long winter.

Spring, I beseech thee, please come forth.
