In our Passover service last Monday night, we quoted from the Song of Songs 2:11-12:
See! The winter is past;One of the characteristic harbingers of spring in these parts is not quite so sweet-voiced:
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
