• Ask of Her, the mighty Mother.
    Her reply puts this other
    Question: What is Spring?-
    Growth in every thing -

    Flesh and fleece, fur and feather,
    Grass and green world all together,
    Star-eyed strawberry breasted
    Throstle above Her nested

    Cluster of bugle blue eggs thin
    Forms and warms the life within,
    And bird and blossom swell
    In sod or sheath or shell.
