Vernal Flowers Laugh

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
Thomas Blackburn, British poet (1916–1977) in "An Easter Hymn"

I arrived in the homeland to temperatures warmer than those experienced in Egypt and to daffodils and hyacinth blooming. What a warm and cheerful welcome!
