So far untilyesterday my experience of spring has been looking out the hospital window. however today I am home on a weekend pass and when I saw three Robins out the car window yesterday I felt like shedding tears at their wonderful sight. the poem included below I had written several years ago and had planned on posting it at the beginning of spring this season however on March19th I was undergoing surgery to have a blockage removed from my carotid artery, which had been responsible for the stroke I had had.I would like to express
my appreciation and thanks to all who have expresed their well wishes and prayers for my recovery. and to my daughter Riel for her fine job of continuing with this blog in my absence
spring whispered and I listenedas trees swung bare branches in welcome pussy willows basked in warm sunlight lulled by blended sounds of mating melodiessinging ageless songs of hopeful renewal spring sighed and I watchedas melting snow created lawn ponds awakened roots in the moist earth quenched their frozen winter thirstand yearned to stretch their green shoots upward spring shouted and I felt its poweras disintegrating river ice abandoned its frozen grasp pelting rains and furious winds spurned slothful winterand rivers swelled their banks with prideful freedomwhile egg laden fish dreamed of journeying home spring returned today and I smiled and was contentsecure in my knowledge of its enduring loyalty

There are 63 covered bridges in the province of New Brunswick and I love finding them in those 'out of the way' places. I have photographed most all of them, with only about 4 or 5 yet to locate. I still have many photos yet to post on my New Brunswick Covered Bridges blog. If you would like to visit and see more pictures of Covered Bridges, just click on the picture above.
