To the ancient Greeks the celandine was the harbinger of Spring. Its name derives from the Greek chelidōn, for Swallow, another sign of Spring. Our Swallows will not be here for a while, but the birds arrive earler in Greece.
"Well Old Man
Do you think this is your last Spring?"
"Not if I have anything to do with it!"
There's a point to existence
Little flowers saying
First blossom petals,
On my remaining hair.
