Ode to Spring






"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
                                                                                                                                           - Mark Twain





"Is it so small a thing, To have enjoy'd the sun, To have lived light in the spring, To have loved, To have thought, To have done?"
                                                                                                                                - Matthew Arnold








"Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!"
                                                                                                           - Thomas Blackburn
