Crocus shoots poke their heads through the soil, lured by the warming sun. Ferns uncurl their tightly wound fiddles like a slow, deliberate yawn. We, too, cautiously turn our faces to the sun, relaxing stiff shoulders, clenched jaws. Spring. We knew it would arrive, but months of chilled toes and fingers warn, “Not yet!” Who else is up? We will gather at the Gatehouse to celebrate our passage to a new season, then wander around Morven Park to see what treasures we discover through sight, sound, touch, taste. We will document our findings and feelings in provided journals and report to the group when we re-gather at the Gatehouse. All along the way, we will hear the words of poets across the centuries who like us are inspired to celebrate Spring. Nancy Morgan has led writing workshops in America and abroad.
