The First Day of Spring

First Day of Spring ©Jackie Brooks“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. The first day of spring is due to arrive, if the calendar does not break down, about the twenty first of March, when the earth turns the corner of Sun Alley and starts for Summer Street. But the first spring day is not on the time-table at all. It comes when it is ready, and in the latitude of New York this is usually not until after All Fool’s Day.” –Henry Van Dyke
