Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
Ah, happy hills! ah, pleasing shade!
  Ah, fields beloved in vain!
Where once my careless childhood stray’d,
  A stranger yet to pain.
I feel the gales that from ye blow
A momentary bliss bestow,
  As, waving fresh their gladsome wing,
My weary soul they seem to smooth,
And, redolent of joy and youth,
  To breathe a second spring.
        Gray.—Prospect of Eton College, Stanza 2.
And bees their honey redolent of spring.
        Dryden.—Fable on the Pythagorean System.
