. . . is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots and spring rain. . . .
It may begin for fools, but it will end with birds and flowers. It's the time animals are on the move, stretching their legs or wings, and holding the sunshine in their eyes.
We have all sorts of wonderful new books added for April, so take a look. Especially suitable are the Books for Bird Lovers. Grab your binoculars and notepads, or just put a chair by a window.
April need not be so cruel....

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understandingthe necessary plan."
—Irving Townsend, Separate Lifetimes
