Sun lies upon the splendid daffodils
And every thought of winter fades
For who could be in disquiet now
As the world stirs and rises awake
And see this new time that is built
From the weed and leaf of autumn
So now come out of your restfulness
Leave your deep millpond blanket
To take of the sparkling waters
In a frenzied refreshment of excess
We see these pearls of spring appear
Rafts of spent ardour atop the water
And then sated return to the shadows
And wait for the flies to rise up
