And sure enough, there he is running around filling up all the little nooks, cracks, and crannies with big eggs, little eggs, round and flat ones; long and thin ones, red eggs, blue eggs, yellow eggs, and polka-dot eggs. There is only one excuse for all this commotion and excitement, and that is, that Spring is here, it's Easter time, and vacation starts, to last for a whole week. "Easter time is the time for eggs, and the time for eggs is the Easter time". As I lie here in the grass, with the birds singing softly overhead, and the distant murmurings of soft music blending with the harsher notes of children at play, I begin to think of all that has been done for me, and all the rest like me. Of all the sorrows, and joys I have known, of all the disap- pointments and heartaches I also wonder as I think, just why we must go through all these problems in life; strong while young, slaving while mid- dle-aged, and complaining when old. Why do people live if they are des- tined to die? It must be the pretty things in life, such as the seasons: Winter, with the soft whiteness of the snow, bending the branches of tall, graceful pines, or Summer with its tropical-like heat everywhere, everyone lazy and lolling around, and then Spring; the super- season when everything is gay and lively and everyone's fancies besides young men's, turn "to love and stuff". --Billy Kilgour.
