Subject(s): Gardens & Gardening; Hathaway, Anne (1556-1623)


ON such a day of quiet rain
When all the air was gray and sweet
With unseen flowers, and Spring's dear pain
Of longing in her pulses beat

SHE may have stood with arms outspread
Among the box-trees dripping spice,
And listened for his coming tread
As for the harps of Paradise.

WE sigh for him whom God's red spur
Drove glorious up the heights of tears, --
But in the valley, what of her,
And her long aching outgrown years?
