I BURIED my heart so deep, so deep,
Under a secret hill of pain,
And said, "O broken pitiful thing,
Even the magic spring
Shall ne'er awake thee to life again,
Tho' March woods glimmer with opal rain
And passionate koels sing."

The kimshuks burst into dazzling flower,
The seemuls burgeoned in crimson pride,
The palm-groves shone with the oriole's wing,
The koels began to sing,
And soft clouds broke in a twinkling tide ...
My heart leapt up in its grave and cried,
"Is it the spring, the spring?"
