DAYS TOO SHORT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When primroses are out in spring
Last Line: For me, doth wear the veil of night.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Spring

When primroses are out in Spring,
And small, blue violets come between;
When merry birds sing on boughs green,
And rills, as soon as born, must sing;

When butterflies will make side-leaps,
As though escaped from Nature's hand
Ere perfect quite; and bees will stand
Upon their heads in fragrant deeps;

When small clouds are so silvery white
Each seems a broken rimmèd moon --
When such things are, this world too soon,
For me, doth wear the veil of Night.
