Down in the earth in the dark winter bed
Someone is calling, the crocus said.
In colours bright they quickly dressed,
In lavender, purple and gold of the best.
Then out in the grass they dance in a ring
And call to the children, “Come out! It is spring.”
H.Henley, taken from the book ‘Spring’ Poems, Songs and Stories by Wynstones Press.
We are open again for business 2018 and have already seen some adventurous walkers pass the box. We have added some new food; pizza and veggie wraps…we hope you enjoy!
I found a tiny snowdrop, blooming in the cold,
I’ll share with you the secret the little flower told:
“Though winter still is here, it hasn’t long to stay.
I came ahead to tell you that spring is on its way.”
Christina T. Owen, from ‘A Journey Through Time in Verse and Rhyme’ Poems collected by Heather Thomas.
Spring is on its way and we will be opening the wee box again on Friday 17th March.
Many thanks to all the walkers who have left excellent feedback at our wee seada luis box on the Great Glen Way. Happy trails!
