'Germinal, Floreal, Prairial'
These were names given to the Spring months at a famous time some hundred years ago, when men in the April folly of their hearts dreamed that they could make all things new.” References myth, fairy tale, legend symbolic of spring, including Pan; “in the words of the biologists, this [spring] is the time of variation”—no child like another
