Spring is in full bloom in and around both of our campuses! Take a look and see if you can guess what pics are from which campus!
The rich profusion thee confounds, my love,
Of flowers, spread athwart the garden. Aye,
Name upon name assails thy ears, and each
More barbarous-sounding than the one before–
Like unto each the form, yet none alike;
And so the choir hints a secret law,
A sacred mystery. Ah, love could I vouchsafe
In sweet felicity a simple answer!
Gaze on them as they grow, see how the plant
Burgeons from the seed into flower and fruit,
Bursts from the seed so soon as fertile earth
Send it to life from her sweet bosom, and
Comments the unfolding of the delicate leaf
To the sacred goad of ever-moving light!An except from The Metamorphosis of Plants by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (Translated by Heinz Norden)
