Excerpts from Spring 1958 Edition
In the darkness of the morning,
All the deep, dark moving shadows
Spring is the renaissance of the seasons; it is the awakening of life. During spring, nature paints some of her most beautiful scenes: greenish tinted willows bending low over a swift stream swollen with the water of melting snow, fields of lordly daffodils bowing their crowns to the sun, and rows of Japanese cherries and apple trees flowering in all their splendor. The vernal renaissance is a time when nature displays some of her greatest architecture: the magic of the leaf,, the beauty of the flower, and the simplicity and strength of a bird's nest. Nature also writes some of her most beautiful music during this time: the gentle whispering of a spring breeze, the song of a thrush, and the crescendos of swift streams of water and rivers of sap.
The artists of nature take part in this renaissance: the goddess of color, the spirit of life, and the creator of beauty. Nature blends the talents of these great artists to produce an effect that man looks forward to year of ter year - the rebirth of nature's arts with all its splendor and beauty.
Poem by Nancy Sadler.
0h Mountain, thou art like a stately queen
Glistening snow forms a diamond crown
