"In the clearing beyond the castle, the twelve months sit about a fire, warming their feet, exchanging tales. They may do favours for you, if you are polite. you may pick strawberries in December's frost."

From Neil Gaiman's "Instructions" which happens to be one of my favourite poems ever.

I also thought of "I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings" from John Gillespie Magee's "High Flight"
