ECHOES OF SPRING: 1, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I walk about in driving snow
Last Line: Within my heart has built her nest.
Alternate Author Name(s): Lake, Claude
Subject(s): Spring

I WALK about in driving snow,
And drizzling rain, splashed o'er and o'er;
No sign that radiant spring e'en now
Stands at the threshold of the door.

No sign that fragrant violets burn
To burst the ground and quicken forth;
No sign that swallow flights return,
To gladden all the serious north.

But in my breast -- what flutterings here!
What bursts of song! what twitt'rings blest!
Sure the first swallow of the year
Within my heart has built her nest.
