Like the Spirit of LoVe felt everywhere;

"Flora is the Roman Goddess of flowering plants, especially those that bear fruit. 
Spring, of course, Is Her season, and She has elements of a LoVe GoDDess,
With its attentdant attributes of Fertility, Sex, and BLoSSoMing. She is quite ancient; the Sabines are said to have named a month for Her {which corresponds to ours and the Romans}
~ April

"Just sitting quietly, doing nothing, Spring comes,
 and the grass grows by itself."
 ~ Zenrin poem

"I stuck My head out the window this morning
 and Spring kissed Me bang in the face."
 ~ Langston Hughes

~ Pablo Neruda
