The suddenness of life was mine
When first through my awakened eye
I saw, and held my breath to see,
The polished emerald of the sky.

There never was a thing as fine
I thought, as this upon my pane,
The magnified magnificence
Of one small drop of rain.

And in the smoky hour of dawn
Along the way where I would pass,
The dew-drops were like jewels on
The long-stretched fingers of the grass.

The brown-lipped passion of the earth
In March, spanned life's antithesis --
When every naked bending bough,
Was like a shoulder in the breeze.
