And seeing gardens in the Spring I well can credit it.
- Winifred Mary Letts
- Francis M. Chapman
The Winter Garment of Repentance fling:
The Bird of Time has but a little way
To fly--and Lo! the Bird is on the Wing.
- Omar Khayyám
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
- Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant
