Subject(s): Spring


Spring, ah yes, the joyful time of year,
When one begins to sense the cosmic urge,
When winter winds have ceased their dreary dirge,
And crocuses and daffodils appear;
Spring, you say, bright season of delight;
But where on Barcelona's cheerless plain
Where innocents by thousands have been slain,
Is there a blossom spared from bloody blight?
Where April thunders once had rolled about,
There, now, the noisy cannons shake the sky;
Where once the rain had pattered on the street,
The sound of heavy boots; and martial shout
Re-choes from the walls. A baby's cry
But makes the horror of the scene complete.
