“Ah, how wonderful is the advent of the Spring!—the great annual miracle…. which no force can stay, no violence restrain, like love, that wins its way and cannot be withstood by any human power, because itself is divine power.

“April has searched the winter land
And found her petted flowers again;

She coaxed them with her sun and rain,
And filled the grass with green content,
And made the woods and clover vain.”

“Her fairies climb the bare, brown trees,
And set green caps on every stalk;
Her primroses peep bashfully
From borders of the garden walk,
And in the reddened maple tops
Her blackbird gossips sit and talk.”
~Hannah R. Hudson, “April,” The Atlantic Monthly, April 1868

“Spring is beautiful, and smells sweet. Spring is when you shake the curtains, and pound on the rugs, and take off your long underwear, and wash in all the corners. ~Virginia Cary Hudson, “Spring,” O Ye Jigs & Juleps!, 1962″

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” ~William Shakespeare
