C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
        With a bee in every bell,
Almond bloom, we greet thee well.
Edwin Arnold.    
        Blossom of the almond trees,
April’s gift to April’s bees.
Edwin Arnold.    
        White as the blossoms which the almond tree,
Above its bald and leafless branches bears.
Margaret J. Preston.    
        Like to an almond tree ymounted hye
  On top of greene Selinis all alone,
With blossoms brave bedecked daintily;
  Whose tender locks do tremble every one,
  At everie little breath, that under heaven is blowne.
        Almond blossom, sent to teach us
That the spring days soon will reach us.
Edwin Arnold.
