NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The woods are waking up. The stolid hardwood trees are still mostly bare, but the forest understory is already greening and greening and greening. Dormant ground cover is greening up through moldering leaf litter, and tiny green shoots are opening at the tips of saplings and woody shrubs.
"The Dark Warning of an Early Spring" is from the March 11, 2018 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Margaret Renkl and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
