The Coming of Spring, updated..

The coming of spring by G Ferrier - Hill Collection mhx 1912 b This is a nice little painting from the Minnesota Historical Society Collection, by someone named G. Ferrier, and once owned by James J. Hill. I have re-inserted the bats and balls that Ferrier originally intended to include in the painting. This was obviously done during Ferrier’s “Dull Browns” period.

And now, in closing our moment of culture, a pair of haiku, first by Jack Kerouac:

Empty baseball field

__ A robin,

Hops along the bench


And a second, by yours truely:

an easy play.Woh!

ball darts away! surprising!

— glove of solid rock!
