And I shall never care to build again.

A Rosebush said: These frosts are wearisome,

I neither care to wax nor care to wane.

The Ocean said: I thirst from long ago,

Because earth’s rivers cannot fill the main. —

When Springtime came, red Robin built a nest,

And trilled a lover’s song in sheer delight.

Grey hoarfrost vanished, and the Rose with might

Clothed her in leaves and buds of crimson core.

The dim Moon brightened. Ocean sunned his crest,

Dimpled his blue, yet thirsted evermore.”

Their wonted liveries, and the mazed world,

By their increase, now knows not which is which.”

April June and November

From January up to May

April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.”

Doth set my pugging tooth on edge;

For a quart of ale is a dish for a king.”

Three April perfumes in three hot Junes burn’d,

Since first I saw you fresh, which yet are green.”
