Quiet Corner: A green place
“My mind went at once to my tulips, frozen into the black soil of the bed. My imagination burrowed in like a mole and saw, in the center of the frozen bulb, a green place — quick and alive and radiant, the force that survives every winter blast and flies up, in spite of itself, to green spring.”
