MARCH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The earth seems a desolate mother
Last Line: Under her bare, brown breast.
Alternate Author Name(s): Paul, John

THE earth seems a desolate mother, --
Betrayed like the princess of old,
The ermine stripped from her shoulders,
And her bosom all naked and cold.

But a joy looks out from her sadness,
For she feels with a glad unrest
The throb of the unborn summer
Under her bare, brown breast.
