THE TRYST OF SPRING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Stern winter sought the hand of spring
Last Line: Before his sight.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Spring

Stern Winter sought the hand of Spring,
And, tempered to her milder mood,
Died leafless on the budding breast
He fondly wooed.

She wept for him her April tears,
But, from the shadows wandering soon,
Dreamed of a warmer love to come
With lordly June.

He scatters roses at her feet
And sunshine o'er her queenly brow,
And through the listening silence breathes
A bridal vow.

She answers not; but, like a mist
O'er-brimmed and tremulous with light,
In sudden tears she vanishes
Before his sight.
