ADMONITION FOR SPRING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Look away now from the high lonesome hills
Last Line: The heavy hyacinth remembering death.
Alternate Author Name(s): Smalacombe, John; Mackay, L. A.
Subject(s): Hyacinths; Spring


Look away now from the high lonesome hills
So hard on the hard sky since the swift shower;
See where among the restless daffodils
The hyacinth sets his melancholy tower.

Draw in your heart from vain adventurings;
Float slowly, swimmer, slowly drawing breath.
See, in this wild green foam of growing things
The heavy hyacinth remembering death.
