I miss spring in my little village, in the green countryside of Northern Tuscany, when the grass is bright green, trees blossom, colorful flowers grow in the fissures of old stone walls…

brilla nell’aria e per li campi esulta

sì ch’a mirarla intenerisce il core

‘Spring brightens
the air around, exults in the fields,
so the heart is moved to see it’

(Giacomo Leopardi, from Il passero solitario, ‘The solitary sparrow’)
