  1. Joan Hudson says:

    With tumbled hair of swarms of bees,
    And flower-robes dancing in the breeze,
    With sweet, unsteady lotus-glances,
    Intoxicated, Spring advances.

    From an anthology of Sanskrit poems of 12th-15th centuries (trans. John Brough, 1968
    Penguin book of Garden Writing
