A Little Dose of Spring

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth

~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.
~Gertrude S. Wister

To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.
~Beverly Nichols

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.
~W. Earl Hall

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
~Mark Twain
