„In February, if the days be clear,
The waking bee, still drowsy on the wing,
Will sense the opening of another year
And blunder out to seek another spring.“

—  Vita Sackville-West, The Land (1926), "Bee-Master", p. 40

„My heart's prepared for aching
The moment you take wing.
But not, my friend, for breaking
While there's another spring.“

—  Yip Harburg American song lyricist 1896 - 1981
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"

Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every opening flower!“
