Borisovmusatov spring by D-A-Skelly


A Prayer In Spring 
 by 
Robert Frost

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day; 
And give us not to think so far away 
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here 
All simply in the springing of the year. 

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night; 
And make us happy in the happy bees, 
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees. 

And make us happy in the darting bird 
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill, 
And off a blossom in mid-air stands still. 

For this is love and nothing else is love, 
The which it is reserved for God above 
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.

The Lake Isle of Innisfree 
by
William Butler Yeats

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.


And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

Poem from Love's Labour's Lost
 by 
William Shakespeare

When daisies pied and violets blue, 
  And lady-smocks all silver-white, 
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue 
  Do paint the meadows with delight, 
The cuckoo then, on every tree, 
Mocks married men; for thus sings he, 
  Cuckoo! 
Cuckoo, cuckoo! - O word of fear, 
Unpleasing to a married ear! 

When shepherds pipe on oaten straws, 
  And merry larks are ploughmen's clocks, 
When turtles tread, and rooks, and daws, 
  And maidens bleach their summer smocks 
The cuckoo then, on every tree, 
Mocks married men; for thus sings he, 
  Cuckoo! 
Cuckoo, cuckoo! - O word of fear, 
Unpleasing to a married ear!
