Spring at Walden

The ice on the pond was not yet dissolved, though there were some open spaces, and it was all dark-colored and saturated with water. There were some slight flurries of snow...but for the most part when I came out to the railroad...the rails shone in the spring sun, and I heard the lark and pewee and other birds already come to commence another year with us.

They were pleasant spring days, in which the winter of man's discontent was thawing as well as the earth, and the life that had lain torpid began to stretch itself.
