But If You So Much As Dare To Speak…

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 come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.
Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time, 1926

No need to take the jacket, I thought on the way out the door but did it anyway.
I had never managed without 🙂

  4. Hola Hanna! 🙂 veo que por fin ya os ha llegado la Primavera floral. Siempre más tarde que nosotros, jajaja!. Lo que más me atrae es esa luz nítida y clara que tenéis en vuestro país. Me he puesto al día de todos tus posts! Magníficos y como siempre, con imágenes llenas de vida y colorido. Es un placer contemplarlos! Hasta siempre Hanna! ❤
