Subject(s): Spring

I would be old and gray,
Quiet and still,
Peaceful as an oak tree,
Asleep on the hill.

Past time for flowering,
Soberly I'd wait;
While Spring's gay riot
Danced by the gate.

I would have silence,
Dreaming, alone.
(Life cannot hurt you
Once youth is gone.)

I have latched my gateway,
Bolted my door;
Spring shall not catch me,
Ever, any more.

I shall have quiet,
Nothing to fear...
(Green and gold and azure!)
Spring, I am here!
