O, VERY SOON, NOW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: O, very soon, now, on the earth and sky
Last Line: O, very soon, on doorstep, yard, and wall.
Subject(s): April


O, very soon, now, on the earth and sky,
Will come a special light till it will seem
That hills and dim horizons where they lie
Wear once again some quality of dream;
And cool, wet odours where the ploughlands are
Will seek us out and make us strange and still
Till we shall grow too thoughtful of a star
In dreamy splendour hung above a hill.

And young girls strolling in the April street
Will laugh, not understanding half their laughter,
Nor the new light in faces that they meet;
And old men, seeing them will think thereafter
How warm and friendly now the sun will fall,
O, very soon, on doorstep, yard, and wall.
