Fair daffodils we weep to see!

                                                                                      March the 1st

Is officially the beginning of spring  and today was a lovely sunny day if a little cold.

Everywhere on the farm there are signs of new life .

To Daffodils

BY ROBERT HERRICK

Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
         You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
         Has not attain’d his noon.
                        Stay, stay,
                Until the hasting day
     Has run

                But to the even-song;
And, having pray’d together, we
Will go with you along.
We have short time to stay, as you,
         We have as short a spring;
As quick a growth to meet decay,
         As you, or anything.
                        We die
                As your hours do, and dry away
Like to the summer’s rain;

      Or as the pearls of morning’s dew,
                  Ne’er to be found again.

Yellow is the colour of friendship

Spring is in the air
