Sobbed, in love, at someone’s feet. (Alexander Blok)

Swallow and March

One swallow does not make a summer, but one skein of geese, cleaving the murk of March thaw, is the Spring. (Aldo Leopold)
The snow-flakes fall in showers,
The time is absent still,
When all Spring’s beauteous flowers,
When all Spring’s beauteous flowers
Our hearts with joy shall fill.
With lustre false and fleeting
The sun’s bright rays are thrown;
The swallow’s self is cheating:
The swallow’s self is cheating,
And why? He comes alone! (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

without leaving a trace.

March.
In my fresh hands. (Federico García Lorca)
