“Open the windows
For, the kind breeze is celebrating the birthday of the beautiful flowers
And spring,
On each and every branches
Close to each young leaf,
Has turned on lovely candles!

All swallows have come back
Singing the lovely song of freshness

Our narrow street is filled with spring songs
And the cherry trees
Are all blossoms
To celebrate the birthday of every flower”

Fereydoon Moshiri, Believe in the Spring

This poem popped up on my twitter yesterday via a friend and I thought it very fitting for the long-awaited, beautifully sunny weekend we’ve been having. It’s amazing what some sunshine does to us!
