SCRIPSI
Now spring’s reviving glance has freed/ The ice from stream and river./ The valley turns green with joy of hope./ Old winter, growing impotent, crawls back/ To the rough mountains; as he flees, he hurls/ Fitful gusts of icy-kerneled sleet/ In streaks on the green meadows./ But the sun allows no whiteness;/ Growth and creation stir and strive/ To cover everything with color.— GOETHE
