FRESH SPRING

Quotations from Thomas Merton’s When The Trees Say Nothing:Today was the prophetic day, the first of real shining spring: not that there was not warm weather last week, not that there will not be cold weather again.

But this was the day of the year when spring became truly credible. Freezing night, but cold bright morning, and a brave, bright shining of sun that is new, and an awakening in all the land, as if the earth were aware of its capacities!

 Real spring weather—these are the precise days when everything changes. All the trees are fast beginning to be in leaf and the first green freshness of a new summer is all over the hills. Irreplaceable purity of these few days chosen by God as His sign!
