good-bye winter

"For, lo, the winter is over and past,the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land..."
The Song of Solomon, 2: 11-12
For lo, the rain is not over and gone! In fact, it hasn't even started yet, but we know it will!
In the meantime, we revel in each sunny day and wear ourselves out in the fresh air;
prematurely doing all we can in the yard as an excuse to be outside!
And the birds will still sing even when it is raining and the rain will wash away the last of our snow.
Tell me, have any of you heard the voice of the turtle? Just wondering.
