• Flower god, god of the spring, beautiful, bountiful,
    Cold-dyed shield in the sky, lover of versicles,
    Here I wander in April
    Cold, grey-headed; and still to my
    Heart, Spring comes with a bound, Spring the deliverer,
    Spring, song-leader in woods, chorally resonant;
    Spring, flower-planter in meadows,
    Child-conductor in willowy
    Fields deep dotted with bloom, daisies and crocuses:
    Here that child from his heart drinks of eternity:
    O child, happy are children!
