Teachers return to school today. In celebration, I exercised the film rights to my last three tweets.

Peter Stephens says in a blog post introducing the video:
I had a nice day Monday hiking around the Appalachian Trail’s Roller Coaster off of Bears Den. I used my phone there to shoot this forty-second videopoem.
He added in a comment:
My first videopoem in over a year. Forty seconds long and a single shoot, so it’s not like it killed me or nothing.
“Midwinter spring” is Peter Stephens‘ first foray into videopoetry, a film for the opening stanza of Eliot’s “Little Gidding.”
