Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
          Come when the rains
Have glazed the snow and clothed the trees with ice,
While the slant sun of February pours
Into the bowers a flood of light. Approach!
The incrusted surface shall upbear thy steps
And the broad arching portals of the grove
Welcome thy entering.
        Bryant—A Winter Piece. L. 60.
The February sunshine steeps your boughs
And tints the buds and swells the leaves within.
        Bryant—Among the Trees. L. 53.
February makes a bridge, and
March breaks it.
        Herbert—Jacula Prudentum.
February, fill the dyke
With what thou dost like.
        Tusser—Hundred Points of Good Husbandry. February’s Husbandry. (1577 Edition “With what ye like.”)
