A little madness in the Spring

(Spring by René Magritte, 1898-1967, Belgian Surrealist


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!

~ Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), American poet

Love it! Only Emily could say it so perfectly. Here's to the Clown and the Fool in each of us -- celebrate and be free!

Nice match of art to poem! I hadn't seen that Magritte before.
