NOVITIATE, by            
First Line: My enemy has come again
Last Line: By love and laughter.

My enemy has come again
To storm the waking hill;
I dare not walk the petaled lane
That leaves my sill.

His words are furious and sweet
On April winds that pass;
I hear the rustle of his feet
Among the grass.

Past the green ramparts of the spring
I shall not go hereafter --
Lest I be taken, venturing,
By love and laughter.
