In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            CXV.
             
      Now fades the last long streak of snow,
          Now burgeons every maze of quick
          About the flowering squares, and thick
      By ashen roots the violets blow.

      Now rings the woodland loud and long,
          The distance takes a lovelier hue,
          And drown’d in yonder living blue
      The lark becomes a sightless song.

      Now dance the lights on lawn and lea,
          The flocks are whiter down the vale,
          And milkier every milky sail
      On winding stream or distant sea;

      Where now the seamew pipes, or dives
          In yonder greening gleam, and fly
          The happy birds, that change their sky
      To build and brood; that live their lives

      From land to land; and in my breast
          Spring wakens too; and my regret
          Becomes an April violet,
      And buds and blossoms like the rest.
