Spring

While an early-arrived guest, we officially welcome spring at Young Harris College this week. To help cast off any lingering winter dormancy, Robert Frost’s musings on the new season about to begin waft over us like a warm afternoon breeze, drawing us into a new consciousness. Enjoy your reading and join us this week in chapel while we reflection on the faithful yet unlikely friendship between David and Jonathan. In our own expression of burgeoning new life, join us in chapel, too, as one of our own, Marcus McGill—a senior at YHC—preaches for the first in our chapel. Marcus, following graduation, will be pursuing his call to ministry in seminary.

Have a great Monday.

“Spring Pools” by Robert Frost

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect
The total sky almost without defect,
And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver,
Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,
And yet not out by any brook or river,
But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.
The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods —
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.
