The weather has gradually become milder...
"Ere frost-flower and snow-blossom faded and fell, and the splendor of winter had passed out of sight,The ways of the woodlands were fairer and stranger than dreams that fulfill us in sleep with delight;"
Algernon C. Swinburne, March: An Ode
"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush."
- Doug Larson
"The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
- Joyce Kilmer, Spring
"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills..."
-William Wordsworth, Daffodils
I had to get a "bit o' shine" in there! *wink*
