Oh I do so love Spring. It is my favourite time of year. New life and hope around every corner.
Through bush, through brier,
Over park, over pale
Through flood, thorough fire
I do wander everywhere
Swifter than the moone’s sphere:
And I serve the fairy queen.
To dew her orbs upon the green
The cowslips tall her pensioners be:
In their gold coats spots you see
Those be rubies fairy favours
In those freckles live their savours:
I must go seek some dewdrops here
And hang a pearl in every cowslip’s ear…
A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Shakespeare
