In die eerste Lieve vrouwkensdagen was de Lente ziek. De zon bleef weg en klaterde maar van tijd tot tijd, zoo door een wolkenholleken, een bussel licht op de gele boterbloemen. Het versche groen dat zij langs alle kanten geweldig uit den grond, de boomen en het water had gezogen, zat er ongeduldig naar te wachten.

In those first Lady's Days, Spring was sick. The sun stayed away, and only splashed from time to time, like this through a cloud cavern, a bundle of light on the yellow buttercups. The fresh greenery she had sucked mightily out of the ground, trees, and water on all sides, was impatiently waiting for it.
Felix Timmermans, Pallieter
