Fawn of the forest in later spring
When even the grass goes wondering,
When forest and field are a sea-green flame,
A vibrant beauty no words can name.

When even hepaticas, fast asleep,
Are cradled awake in the spring-winds' sweep,
When only the oaks are stark-eyed, dumb,
Still unawakened, silent numb --

Then, velvety soft as a dappled deer
And bright with the bloom of a fawn's first year,
Far through the forest glows velvet red
The budding horns on the young oak's head.
