Well-apparel’d April on the heel Of limping Winter treads.

William Shakespeare


A little madness in the Spring Is wholesome even for the King.

Emily Dickinson


The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day.

Robert Frost 


Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year.

Robert Frost


Winter’s done, and April’s in the skiss, Earth, look up with laughter in your eyes!

Charles G. D. Roberts


Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.

Rainer Maria Rilke



The spring is here! Unfortunately I’m very busy at the moment thus the scarce blog updates … will try to find some time for more updates though. I hope you too enjoy the spring time, wherever you are!

The moon stalled behind the lake ...

The moon stalled behind the lake

And looked like the open window

Of a hushed, brilliantly illuminated house,

Where something awful had taken place.

Was the owner brought in dead?

Have the mistress and her lover fled?

Or did the little girl disappear - 

And by the creek they found her slipper …

From the earth it wasn’t visible.

Sensing dire misfortune, we suddenly grew still.

The eagle owls shrieked for the repose of souls,

And in the garden a stifling wind howled.

by Anna Akhmatova, translated by Judith Hemschemeyer.

Anna Akhmatova (1889 - 1966) is recognized as one of the greatest twentieth-century Russian poets.
