"The Sun Was Warm but the Wind Was Chill"

We are getting desperate for spring here at the Library and it’s starting to show in our choice of bookmarks. Make sure to pick some up the next time you are in; they may be the only butterflies and flowers you will see for a while.

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March.

You're one month on in the middle of May.
Two Tramps in Mud Time by Robert Frost
