A Light Exists in Spring
Springtime in Vienna

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 hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.

It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me.

Then, as horizons step,
Or noons report away,
Without the formula of sound,
It passes, and we stay:

A quality of loss
Affecting our content,
As trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a sacrament.

(Emily Dickinson)

  1. You were lucky catching a moment of sunlight out of the very few moments like this this month!!

  2. And you have captured the light and the very spirit of Spring.

  3. What a happy photo! There is nothing better than witnessing the arrival of spring. I just looked through your last several posts, and am looking forward to seeing Vienna in person soon!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
