Байрон:

...one may say,
And stand convicted of more truth than treason,
That there are months which nature grows more merry in,—
March has its hares, and May must have its heroine.


Здесь — эстетический эффект от неожиданного созвучия (такой случайно подвернувшейся однокорененности) hare – heroine. Совершенно непереводимый эффект. Один переводчик пытается его воспроизвести несоизмеримо более банальным «Известно, в марте млеет каждый кот, а в мае людям маяться черед». Другой и не пытается; предпочитает оставить зайца.
