Springtime is Incumen In

Today was gorgeous in my neck of the woods. A cold, frosty morning developed into a wonderfully warm, sunny day. It's about time--the trees are ready to burst out in leaf. In celebration of spring's approach, here's one of my favorite bits by Robert Frost:

"Nothing Gold Can Stay" (1923)

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

The poem choice has nothing to do with Wall Street's first four day rally since November (even if it is a "bear market rally"), for which I say "hurrah!"
