Around the year with Ella Wheeler Wilcox.This is the season of wooing and mating;
The heart of nature calls out for its own;
And God have pity on those who are waiting
The fair unfolding of Spring, alone.
For the fowls fly north in pairs together,
And two by two are the leaves unfurled,
And the whole intent of the wind and weather
Is to waken love in the thought of the world.
