And above the trees a hundred springs.“

„Good rain is coming to our delight.
Its early-spring timing is perfectly right.
With wind it drifts in all through the night.
Silently it's drenching everything in sight.“

—  Du Fu Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty 712 - 770

„In Spring all trees become pregnant“

—  Vitruvius, livre De architectura

Chapter IX "Timber" Sec. 1
De architectura (The Ten Books On Architecture) (~ 15BC), Book II
Contexte: In Spring all trees become pregnant, and they are all employing their natural vigor in the production of leaves and of the fruits that return every year. The requirements of that season render them empty and swollen, and so they are weak and feeble because of their looseness of texture. This is also the case with women who have conceived. Their bodies are not considered perfectly healthy until the child is born.

As a man and a woman that plight
Their troth in the warm spring night.“

„Immeasurable pain!
My dreaming soul last night was king again.
As in past days
I wandered through the Palace of Delight,
And in my dream
Down grassy garden-ways
Glided my chariot, smoother than a summer stream;
There was moonlight,
The trees were blossoming,
And a faint wind softened the air of night,
For it was spring.“

—  Li Yu (Southern Tang) ruler of the Southern Tang Kingdom in ancient China 937 - 978
