Sunday in the Park with Rhys

This weekend was busy, but it was loved..

Today BY BILLY COLLINS If ever there were a spring day so perfect,            so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze
                that it made you want to throw                            open all the windows in the house
       and unlatch the door to the canary's cage,                   indeed, rip the little door from its jamb,
          a day when the cool brick paths               and the garden bursting with peonies
          seemed so etched in sunlight                     that you felt like taking
         a hammer to the glass paperweight                  on the living room end table,
  releasing the inhabitants   from their snow-covered                                             cottage

so they could walk out,     holding hands and squinting into this larger dome of blue and white,             well, today is just that kind of day.
