„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.“

„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!“

„It's not too near for me
Like a flower I need the rain“

Whaler (1994), As I Lay Me Down
Контексте: It's not too near for me
Like a flower I need the rain
Though it's not clear to me
Every season has its change
And I will see you
When the sun comes out again.
