Spring, the season of renewal, is upon us once again. Signs of Spring are everywhere. Some of these -- the first sighting of a robin -- are widely recognized, almost universal. There are also local or personal signs of spring -- the opening of the local ice cream stand or the appearance of Little League players on the local ball field. This exhibit celebrates spring through images from the NOBLE Digital Heritage and the Digital Commonwealth. floral_way_wakefield1_300

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect The total sky almost without defect, And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver, Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone, And yet not out by any brook or river, But up by roots to bring dark foliage on. The trees that have it in their pent-up buds To darken nature and be summer woods -- Let them think twice before they use their powers To blot out and drink up and sweep away These flowery waters and these watery flowers From snow that melted only yesterday. -- Spring Pools by Robert Frost
