    ...ласточка...

    "Una rondine non fa primavera".

    Una = undeterminate article, female. "a" (in this phrase: "one single").
    Rondine = swallow
    Non = negation.
    Fa = from the verb FARE, "to do" or "to make". Indicative, Present, 3rd person.
    Primavera = Spring.

    Ciao.

    One Single Swallow Doesnt make Spring? ...
    How I wish, how i wish you were here. Were just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl. Year after Year. Running over the same ground, have we found, same old fear. Wish you were here.

    Yes, Rounder.
    In fact, the very first swallows (birds representing spring and good weather) appear when the season is still bad...
    In other words, it is not enough one single positive element to get certainty that a positive, substantial change is occurring or has been occurred.
