All flowers of Spring are not May’s own;
  The crocus cannot often kiss her;
    The snow-drop, ere she comes, has flown:–
      The earliest violets always miss her.

  The uncertain glory of an April day,
    Which now shows all the beauty of the sun,
      And by and by a cloud takes all away!
~William Shakespeare
