Before the Ballad of Bloom...

The wand that wakes buds is wafting
Over rill and main
Soon the song that sleeps, my darling
Will spill free again

Soon rain-silver notes soft-splashing
Will bring blooming bow’rs
Soon spring’s hidden hymns, my darling
Will wing into flow’rs

Time, for all its testing manner
Never tires earth
Where it lays a lifeless banner
It will sire birth

Like the rush of broken rivers
From ice-fetters freed
Beneath us an ocean quivers
Held, as yet, in seed
