SPRING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: First came the rain, loud, with sonorous lips
Last Line: Who, with blue eyes, set the wild world on fire.
Subject(s): Spring


FIRST came the rain, loud, with sonorous lips;
A pursuivant who heralded a prince:
And dawn put on her livery of tints,
And dusk bound gold about her hair and hips:
And, all in silver mail, the sunlight came,
A knight, who bade the winter let him pass;
And freed imprisoned beauty, naked as
The Court of Love, in all her wildflower shame.
And so she came, in breeze-borne loveliness,
Across the hills; and heaven bent down to bless:
Above her head the birds were as a lyre;
And at her feet, like some strong worshipper,
The shouting water paeaned praise of her
Who, with blue eyes, set the wild world on fire.
