Today is the first day of Spring.

Garrison Keillor has a poem for the occassion on today’s Writer’s Almanac (audio link), appropriately titled, “First Day of Spring”. As always, his reading on the air brings the poem alive in a way that mere reading online or in print can’t achieve.

And he throws in this great quote by Emily Dickinson, too boot:

A little Madness in the Spring / Is wholesome even for the King.
