  • Spring: The Rainbow
  • Summer: Musidora and Damon. The pair appears in Summer, one of the books which make up Thomson's "The Seasons" . Damon is in love with Musidora, but she has not responded to his advances. One hot summer's day, Damon accidentally sees Musidora take off her clothes and bathe naked in a stream: "As from her naked limbs of glowing white, / Harmonious swelled by nature's finest hand, / In folds loose-floating fell the fainter lawn, / And fair exposed she stood." - Source: Tate Britain, Exposed: The Victorian Nude
