UNMISTAKABLE ARRIVAL

Arrival of Spring in Kefalonia
Snow-defying Spring colors in late February, Kefalonia
Arrival of Spring in KefaloniaPatience is definitely a virtue, and certainly rewarded!

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here


A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.


It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.


"A Light Exists in Spring"
 Emily Dickinson
