Best Poem of Duncan Campbell Scott

When Spring Goes By

Grow keener where the ice is lingering still

Haunting the fall of the flute-throated rill,
That keeps a gentle, constant, silver thrill,
While he is restless in his ecstasy.

Of the frail fruit trees by the vanishing lakes:
There's the new moon where the clear sunset floods,
A trace of dew upon the rose leaf sky;

Like a node,
Spinning out the quivering, fine,
Vibrant tendrils of a vine:
