„I do not ask that flowers should always spring
Beneath my feet
I know too well the poison and the sting
Of things too sweet.“

—  Аделаида Энн Проктер, A Chaplet of Verses (1862), "Per Pacem ad Lucem".

„Spring, the sweet spring, is the year's pleasant King,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing,
Cuckoo, jug, jug, pu wee, to witta woo!“
