Bird Song

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”

Anne Bradstreet


I think that this quote explains why we experience such joy when spring comes.  All the pleasant feelings it brings – the anticipation, the relief, the excitement – would not be so strong and pure if we did not endure winter.  Living in a big city I sometimes lose touch with nature, but there is nothing like listening to the song of birds after the quiet of winter and seeing blossoms on the trees which had bare branches for so many months.
