The Legacy of Androva Series

A Literary Spring 🌼

Today's blog post is a collection of my seven favourite quotes about spring, in the hopes of encouraging the chilly UK weather to embrace the new season! I love each of the four seasons, but the arrival of spring is one of my favourite times of the year. Anything seems possible while nature is performing such amazing feats of transformation all around us. I hope you enjoy the beautiful words from these wonderful writers, and thank you very much for visiting my blog today 💕.

“April dress’d in all his trim
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything.”
― William Shakespeare, Sonnet XCVIII

“Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills.

Ours shall be the moonrise stealing
Through the birches ivory-white;
Ours shall be the mystic healing
Of the velvet-footed night.

Ours shall be the gypsy winding
Of the path with violets blue,
Ours at last the wizard finding
Of the land where dreams come true.”

― Lucy Maud Montgomery, Spring Song

“And where suns peep, in every sheltered place,
The little early buttercups unfold
A glittering star or two--till many trace
The edges of the blackthorn clumps in gold.”
― John Clare

“The year has changed his mantle cold
Of wind, of rain, of bitter air;
And he goes clad in cloth of gold,
Of laughing suns and season fair”
― Charles Duke of Orleans, Spring

“Is the spring coming?” he said.
“What is it like?”
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

“It is so small a thing to have enjoyed the sun, to have lived light in the spring, to have loved, to have thought, to have done.”
― Matthew Arnold
