Notes:

April is a youth with curly hair and carrying a garland. He wears a tunic and sandals, with a cape billowing out behind him in the wind, and he rides a bucking bull that is jumping up out of a puddle, reminding us that [in England] April is a season known for rain. There is a poem under the engraving:

APRIL.

Next came fresh April, full of lustyhed,
And wanton as a kid whose horne new buds;
Upon a bull he rode, the same which led
Europa floting trough th’ Argolick fluds:
His horns were gilden with garlands goodly dight
Of all the fairest flowers and freshest buds
Which th’ earth brings forth; and wet he seem’d in sight
With waves, through which he waded for his love’s delight.   Spenser.” (p. 407)
