In literature:

When the wind wakes how they rock in the grasses, And dance with the cuckoo-buds slender and small!
"The Home Book of Verse, Vol. 1 (of 4)" by Various
There's bluebells blowing in the dingles, and cuckoo-buds no end.
"Master Skylark" by John Bennett

In poetry:

The haw-trees hedged the russet lea
Where cuckoo-buds waxed rich with gold;
The wealthy corn rose yellowly
Endlong the wold.
"“The Fairy Rade”" by Madison Julius Cawein
The year was at the summer’s spring
When grass grows fresh and long,
And flowers are more in bud than bloom,
And cuckoos slacken song.
"On Reading Ballads" by Arthur Graeme West
