Spring comes: 
the flowers learn their colored shapes. (1)
Spring has returned. 
The earth is like a child that knows poems. (2)

Spring is God's way of saying, 
'One more time!' (3)
Spring is nature's way of saying, 
'Let's party!' (4)

And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins. (5)
Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers. (6)

Spring never is Spring 
unless it comes too soon. (7)
Spring is when you feel like whistling 
even with a shoe full of slush. (8)

Spring goeth all in white, 
Crowned with milk-white may: (9)
Spring will still come, without you. (10)
A kind word is like a Spring day. (11)

Spring is come home with her world-wandering feet.
And all the things are made young with young desires. (12)
Whoever said Spring was romantic? 
The word that best applies is frantic! (13)

Enjoy the Spring of Love and Youth,
To some good angel leave the rest;
For Time will teach thee soon the truth,
There are no birds in last year's nest! (14)

A little madness in the Spring 
Is wholesome even for the King. (15)
Alas, that Spring should vanish with the Rose!
That Youth's sweet-scented Manuscript should close! (16)

The sun is set, the spring is gone -
We frolic while 'tis May. (17)
Spring being a tough act to follow, 
God created June. (18)
