Subject(s): Spring


Again Thou usherest in a verdant spring.
Help me to feel, to see, to hear
Those beauties which are ever near,
The glory of the sunset's glow
When wistful day is waning;
Let me know
Green branches
Heavy with a summer's snow.
I wish ever to realize
The story spoken in another's eyes,
To see the eager yearning written there
For human understanding, and to share
Of life's abundant vintage store;
I would not ask for any more
Or richer heritage, but let me see
Life, beautiful as it was made for me
By the Artist with a lavish hand,
Whose mastery wrought the sea and land,
Whose thought incarnate is the hills,
And whose command
Loosed a mighty water
From the earth;
Ten thousand rippling, singing falls
Followed its birth
In endless wave on wave,
Drink for the growing fields He gave.
Designed and sketched and colored were they
In perfect harmony and plan
Inimitable by finite man.
All this for you --
Let me know gladness
And a little pain
To show me sunshine through the rain,
To prove that violets do not grow in vain,
To teach me beauty that my heart may sing;
O, God, I thank Thee for the spring.
