An Easter Hymn

Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!

    • You asked the right question, Resa 😊 They are on the top three on my favourite list of birds – well, I’m very happy when I see them.
      They are called Grebes. When they dance you could easily imagine they were taking part in a tango 💃

  1. Lovely photos, Hanna. I love the little verse too. Its good to see the earth awakening from her slumbers. Spring symbolises hope and new beginnings. It’s my favourite month.

    • Thank you, Elisabeth. You express my preferences and the beautiful symbolism of spring. It’s a wonderful time of the year!!

  2. Beautiful. The pictures are proof that it’s getting more and more spring every day.

    • Thanks for that, Rabirius. The days are getting warmer. With some significant relapse 😁

  3. Sunny, springy, lovely pictures. Yay! We had sun last couple of days but it was cold! Today its 16 degrees and it feels like summer 🙂

    • Hi Peter. Up and down it goes 🙃 Bunch of sunny warm days … and then came the frost ❄❄❄
      Thanks for the telling!!!
