IN A SPRING GROVE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Here the white-ray'd anemone is born
Last Line: Each and all these,—and more, and more than these!
Alternate Author Name(s): Pollex, D.; Walker, Patricius
Subject(s): Flowers; Forests; Leaves; Spring; Thorns; Woods


Here the white-ray'd anemone is born,
Wood-sorrel, and the varnish'd buttercup;
And primrose in its purfled green swathed up,
Pallid and sweet round every budding thorn,
Gray ash, and beech with rusty leaves outworn.
Here, too, the darting linnet hath her nest
In the blue-lustered holly, never shorn,
Whose partner cheers her little brooding breast,
Piping from some near bough. O simple song!
O cistern deep of that harmonious rillet,
And these fair juicy stems that climb and throng
The vernal world, and unexhausted seas
Of flowing life, and soul that asks to fill it,
Each and all these,—and more, and more than these!
