And hold it up to the light

There are signs of spring everywhere. The first natural flowers, they are especially welcome.

We went to a nearby lake and the nearby forest to have a look at what is to be discovered. A lot, a lot.

(Posting title is from the poem Introduction to Poetry by Billy Collins.)

... But all they want to do
is tie the poem to a chair with rope
and torture a confession out of it.

They begin beating it with a hose
to find out what it really means.

Love that poem!

@PB: I thought it was an ordinary poem... until I got to the end.
