Thoreau for your Monday…

How silent are the footsteps of spring! there, too, where there is a fraction of the meadow, two rods over, quite bare, under the bank, in this warm recess at the head of the meadow, though the rest of the meadow is covered with snow a foot or more in depth, I was surprised to see skunk-cabbage, with it’s great spear-heads open and ready to blossom…The spring advances in spite of snow and ice, and even cold.March 30,1856.
