Spring


After lonely years of heartless treason
Spring crept round again this season;
The daffodils sprung from the earth
And mocked the snow with nodding mirth;
They bobbed about with yellow heads
And danced above their snowy beds;
The crocuses against the fence
Suggested love might recommence;
Its’ purple-white thrusting flower
Denying death its mortal power;
Chill sun above my plot of garden,
Grant me yet an exile’s pardon;
Consider now my debt as paid
Since both of us knew love betrayed;
Pale breath of winter’s faltering breeze
Dares shake the buds beneath bare trees

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
