I love this poem by John Clare at this time of year, and hear it in my mind’s ear when I’m on an early morning walk and see the ‘pilewort’, commonly known as celandine, unfurling its petals to the day.
A ‘pingle’ is a small enclosed space – it’s a regional, Midlands – word. (John Clare lived in Northamptonshire)

On a Lane in Spring

A Little Lane, the brook runs close beside
And spangles in the sunshine while the fish glide swiftly by
And hedges leafing with the green spring tide
From out their greenery the old birds fly
And chirp and whistle in the morning sun
The pilewort glitters ‘neath the pale blue sky
The little robin has its nest begun
And grass green linnets round the bushes fly
—How Mild the Spring Comes in—the daisy buds
Lift up their golden blossoms to the sky
How lovely are the pingles and the woods
Here a beetle runs—and there a fly
Rests on the Arum leaf in bottle green
And all the Spring in this Sweet lane is seen
