"Act V Scene 4

Early spring a month has passed by

And now the snow has melted

Gentlemen water the flower

Life begins to stir in the plants as the sap rises

The birds return from the South and day by day the grass grows greener

March 28, first quarter

March 21, new moon


April 18, new moon

April 11, last quarter

April 4, full moon."
