And the Spring arose on the garden fair,

Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;

And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast

Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

my soul has once again been been gripped by the inherent romance present in ancient boarding schools oh my goodness i read a study on st paul’s college prep school in new hampshire for one of my classes, and i got completely carried away browsing their website - gothic buildings, circular tiered libraries, ancient pianos, velvet couches, students reading by lamplight, oh just think of the secret societies, the tragic backstories, the forbidden lovers
