To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
A Robin Red breast in a Cage
Puts all Heaven in a Rage
—William Blake, Auguries of Innocence
Day 80. It’s the first official day of spring. I spotted this red robin in the backyard yesterday evening and watched him pull a juicy worm from the soil. They always come back. They know what time it is. Welcome warm weather creatures. You are a friend of mine!
