HAD SPRING NOT COME, by                    
First Line: Again old earth swings
Last Line: My heart would have slept.
Subject(s): Revivals; Spring; Religious Revivals

Again old earth swings
Toward the sun:
Eternal spring's
At the door.

Again old love wakes,
Stirs my sleeping heart
As it takes
Toll once more

Of exquisite pain,
Or the breathless joy
Of sharing again
All that's gone before.

Had old earth kept sealed
Her secrets
Under the snow, unrevealed,
My heart would have slept.
