Spring in Languedoc
The coming of spring to Provence in southern France
Spring comes less dramatically to Provence. Essay focuses on the appearance of the narcissus: with its scent comes “the Everlasting Past, a rustle of the Wind of Death." The essay references troubadours and love songs; quotes an Old French ballad.
