Easter Spring Weekend in The Nine Streets

From all of the team here at 21stcv – we wish you all a lovely and peaceful weekend…

Spring weekend break in Amsterdam - best places to go
Spring weekend break in Amsterdam

The trees are coming into leaf
Like something almost being said;
The recent buds relax and spread,
Their greenness is a kind of grief.

Is it that they are born again
And we grow old? No, they die too,
Their yearly trick of looking new
Is written down in rings of grain.

Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In full grown thickness every May.
Last year is dead, they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.
