Spring brings back color, life and hope
“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!”
"In winter, I plot and plan. In spring, I move."
"Spring won't let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again."
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
“What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.”
“Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.”
“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"…
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
–Frances Hodgson Burnett
“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
–Rainer Maria Rilke
“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
“If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
–Percy Bysshe Shelley
“That is one good thing about this world…there are always sure to be more springs.”
“The deep roots never doubt spring will come.”
“A Robin said: The Spring will never come,
And I shall never care to build again.
A Rosebush said: These frosts are wearisome,
My sap will never stir for sun or rain.
The half Moon said: These nights are fogged and slow,
I neither care to wax nor care to wane.
The Ocean said: I thirst from long ago,
Because earth's rivers cannot fill the main. —
When Springtime came, red Robin built a nest,
And trilled a lover's song in sheer delight.
Grey hoarfrost vanished, and the Rose with might
Clothed her in leaves and buds of crimson core.
The dim Moon brightened. Ocean sunned his crest,
Dimpled his blue, yet thirsted evermore.”
Happy first day of Spring fromVirginia State Park soon!
