Greetings! Happy Spring! I hope the sap is rising wherever you are and the flowers are bursting out of the ground.

Fun fact of the day:
On March 26, 1892, American poet Walt Whitman died at the age of 72 following a stroke. Whitman, often called "the father of free verse," was also an essayist, journalist, and humanist. He served as a volunteer nurse during the American Civil War. His best known work is poetry collection called "Leaves of Grass."
Here is the beginning of one of his famous works:
Song of Myself
I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.
I loafe and invite my soul,
I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass.
And here's Mr. Linky!
