  • Like an army defeated
    The snow hath retreated,
    And now doth fare ill
    On the top of the bare hill;
    The ploughboy is whooping - anon - anon -
    There's joy in the mountains;
    There's life in the fountains;
    Small clouds are sailing,
    Blue sky is prevailing;
    The rain is over and gone!

    - William Wordsworth, 'Written In March'.
