THE BLUEBIRD

He sits among the delicate sprays,
With mists of splendor round him drawn,
And through the spring's prophetic veil
Sees summer's rich fulfillment dawn;
He sings, and his is nature's Voice-
A gush of melody sincere
From that great fount of harmony
Which thaws and runs when spring is here.
From childhood I have nursed a faith
In bluebirds' songs and winds of spring;
They tell me after frost and death
There comes a time of blossoming;
And after snow and cutting sleet,
The cold, stern mood of Nature yields
To tender warmth, when bare pink feet
Of children press her greening fields.
Sing strong and clear, O bluebird dear!
While all the land with splendor fills,
While maples gladden in the vales,
And plum trees blossom on the hills;
Float down the wind on shining wings,
And do -thy will by grove and stream,
While through my life spring's freshness runs
Like music through a poet's dream.
