Welcome Spring!

“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 H. Burnett,  The Secret Garden

“It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes him stand motionless, looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.” 
― John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga

“Or maybe spring is the season of love and fall the season of mad lust. Spring for flirting but fall for the untamed delicious wild thing.” 
― Elizabeth Cohen, The Hypothetical Girl

"Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!" Sitting Bull 

“She turned to the sunlight
    And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
    "Winter is dead.”

― A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young
