First, some brief quotes to introduce and give some literary context to the images:
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Rainer Maria Rilke
They say it's better to bury your sadness in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring to wake from its sleep and burst into green.
The force of Spring –
powerful beyond measure.
Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.
It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes him stand motionless,
looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what. John Galsworthy
The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
