„It will all come back — the wasted splendor,
The heart's lost youth like a breaking flower,
The dauntless dare, and the wistful, tender
Touch of the April hour.“

—  Edwin Markham, The Shoes of Happiness, and Other Poems (1913), The Crowning Hour, III

„My heart is like the willow
That bends, but never breaks.
It sighs when summer jilts her,
It sings when April wakes.“

Rhymes for the Irreverent (1965), Context: My heart is like the willow That bends, but never breaks. It sighs when summer jilts her, It sings when April wakes. So you, who come a-smiling With summer in your eyes, Think not that your beguiling Will take me by surprise. My heart's prepared for aching The moment you take wing. But not, my friend, for breaking While there's another spring. "Irreverent Heart"

Which seldom the rose of enjoyment adorns;
And the heart that is soonest awake to the flowers,
Is always the first to be touch'd by the thorns.“

All her affections are called into life
By winning flatteries, and then thrown back
Upon themselves to perish; and her heart,
Her trusting heart, filled with weak tenderness,
Is left to bleed or break!“
