The Spring Seeker ...

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”

                          ~ Mark Twain
                                      (Samuel Clemens)
                                       ~ 1835-1910  

The rays of a waning winter sunset
brush this sweet robin perched atop
the highest branch of a tree at
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania
as it dreams of the nearby spring
just around the corner.
