THE FIRST BUD O' THE YEAR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: There whispered in my ear
Last Line: That shall the old loss mend.
Subject(s): Graves; Grief; Wind; Tombs; Tombstones; Sorrow; Sadness


THERE whispered in my ear
A little tip-toe Wind:
"I know where you may find
The first bud o' the year."

I ran, outstripping Grief,
And soon the bud I found
Just peeping through the ground,
Wrapt in last year's leaf.

And so some hope may wend
Perchance unto my tomb
To find thereon a bloom
That shall the old loss mend.
