A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown –
Who ponders this tremendous scene –
This whole Experiment of Green –
As if it were his own!
by Emily Dickinson
This seems appropriate given our unseasonably warm weather and closeness to April Fool's Day (Palm Sunday this year). I just finished reading Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson and her family's feuds by Lyndall Gordon.
