WHEN I woke, the sapphire sky
Through the panes was gazing;
Bright the wind was waving by
The chestnuts' yellow blazing.

When I went abroad, the land
Proclaimed a new dominion,
The slow black lanes which ploughs had planned
Shone vital and virginian.

Where the last night's seething rain
Lay in my neighbour's hiring,
It glittered mist and fire amain,
Sun-desired, desiring.

Old hares limped from frond to frond,
With joy half-mastering terror,
And lonely trees blushed rose beyond
Like Venus in a mirror.

Oak-woods that heard the rill-like gush
Of western wind's compassion
Let fall their leaves, and then fell hush
For new annunciation.

I who had drooped the last eve's hours
To think the year forsaken
Saw all the air bloom with fine flowers,
And laughed to have been mistaken.
