SPRINGTIME IN PARIS
AWAKENINGS ALONG THE SEINE
A Light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period
When March is scarcely here.
Emily Dickinson, A Light Exists in Spring
Both American Impressionist Childe Hassam (1859-1935) and poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) were from New England. In contrast to Hassam, who traveled widely, Dickinson rarely left her Amherst home in Massachusetts. Yet the two have captured the essence of early spring above, one in words, the other in paint.
