    For ’t is always fair weather
When good fellows get together
With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear.
          Spring.
8174
    The East and the West in the spring of the world shall blend 1 
        As a man and a woman that plight
        Their troth in the warm spring night.
          Spring.
8175
    How loving is the Lord God and how strong withal!
          Benzaquen.
8176
    Shall the iron argue with the smith what it would be?
Or, shall the wrought iron reason with the monger
To whom it would be sold?
          Benzaquen.

    Love seeks a guerdon; friendship is as God,
Who gives and asks no payment.
          The Marriage of Guenevere. Act i. Sc. 1.

    Fair weather weddings make fair weather lives.
          The Marriage of Guenevere. Act i. Sc. 3.
8179
    There is no sorrow like a love denied
Nor any joy like love that has its will.
          The Marriage of Guenevere. Act i. Sc. 3.
8180
    There are worser ills to face
  Than foemen in the fray;
And many a man has fought because—
  He feared to run away.
          The Marriage of Guenevere. Act. iv. Sc. 3.
8181
    I have need of the sky,
I have business with the grass;
I will up and get me away where the hawk is wheeling
Lone and high,
And the slow clouds go by.
I will get me away to the waters that glass
The clouds as they pass.
I will get me away to the woods.
          I have Need of the Sky.
