Wisdom from Polonius


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Came the Spring with all its splendor,
All its birds and all its blossoms,
All its flowers, and leaves, and grasses.”


John Milton

“In those vernal seasons of the year, when the air is calm and pleasant, it were an injury and sullenness against Nature not to go out and see her riches, and partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth.”


Song of Solomon

“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.”


Alfred, Lord Tennyson

“In the spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish’d dove;
In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to
    thoughts of love.
