Time to jump (6)
This clue could be a double definition.
'time' is the first definition.
The answer and definition can be both human attributes as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?
'jump' is the second definition.
(springing is a kind of jumping)
'to' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for spring that I've seen before include "Start season", "split", "Bound into the season", "Pounce -- pogo stick part", "See 11".)
