SPRING DAWN, by            
First Line: How many springs along my shrouded sense
Last Line: To shadow . . . And to endless spring!
Subject(s): Dawn; Spring; Sunrise

How many springs along my shrouded sense
Have these unchanging quietudes unwound
This moon-brushed hill, a mile of starlit fence,
This windblue sweep of dedicated ground?

How many songs have gleamed in middle air
Like wistful benedictions overhead?
How many hopes, immaculate as prayer,
Have borne sweet fruit among the early dead?

O many springs, and many, many songs
Have I, too sad for singing, tried to sing --
The word escapes that, shadowless, belongs
To shadow . . . and to endless spring!
