Now That April’s Here

Now That April’s Here


Snow paid attention,
left the white pines scarred
and the springtime yard
rife with life and destruction.

Moss hair back from the dead
brings the Green Man’s head
softly, softly, underfoot
right beside the maple root
that quotes Sévigné‚
up the budding tree:
“Spring is red.”

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish every day at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

As a Nation reader, you are likely an engaged progressive who is passionate about bold ideas. I know I can count on you to help sustain our mission-driven journalism.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.
