"Fear no more thou Timid
Flower! Fear no more thy winter's might."
"April stirs sleepy roots with
Spring rain." T.S. Eliot
"Come, O Spring, to burst the
froz'n bud. Bring deep tulips dash'd with fiery dew."
"Venturous flower who growst
through hard cold bower of wintry spring, soft, voiceless bell whose spire
rocks in the grass leaves."
"Herald and harbinger of
spring! With thee begins the year's great jubilee!"
