WHEN lambs were come, who could be slow and sere?
When lambs were come, and each black thorny rod
Lit up with seraph birth and budded clear,
Fresh as the lambs and clouds, and smiled at God.
The clay-green from the river solved away
Till all was crystal; who the crystal conned
Saw where blue pike with their wild lasses lay,
And by old ragstones the new waving frond.

And many a girl by tinkling pastures stood
With primrose brow toward eve's single gem,
And waited in the bright ethereal mood
For one who then would kiss her garments' hem,
Some don and darling of our rural sphere,
That now, this soon-come spring, goes slow and sere.
