and it shines!

In response to silent summons,

the chattering swallows come!


Suddenly they are here, swooping low over the dewy morning garden, chattering to one another as they fly over and around the house. The Swallows have returned! In a well remembered manoeuvre, sweeping through the open door and up into the rafters! Scolding the humans that come to welcome them “home”. Finally, it seems, spring can shake out her leaves and petals and robe herself in summer.
