Early Spring

And it all started in the Spring with quite a lot of bare dirt.

Fireflies in the Garden 

By Robert Frost 

Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
And here on earth come emulating flies,
That though they never equal stars in size,
(And they were never really stars at heart)
Achieve at times a very star-like start.
Only, of course, they can’t sustain the part.
