SPRING and the daffodil again—
I heard the lark at dawn,
A liquid cadence through the rain
Across my lawn.

The wet red roses all around
Stir in the breeze,
The first white trillium breaks the ground
Under the canyon trees.

I bring the wild white flower of spring,
Above all others thine,
As he whom with the gift I bring
Thy Valentine.
