Spring


Spring is when the flowers and birds are born , this is compared when the man born.
..."He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:.." ..."His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings

He furleth close; contented so to look" ."He has his Winter too of pale misfortune, Or else

he would forgo his mortal nature."
