Excerpt

O rapturous promise of the Spring!

O June fulfilling after!
If Autumns sigh, when Summers die,

'Tis drowned in Winter's laughter.
O maiden dawns, O wifely noons,

O siren sweet, sweet nights,
I'd want no heaven could earth be given

Again with its delights
(If love stayed near).

There are such glories for the eye,

Such pleasures for the ear,
The senses reel with all they feel

And see and taste and hear;
There are such ways of doing good,

Such ways of being kind,
And bread that's cast on waters fast

Comes home again, I find.
(O love, stay near.)

There are such royal souls to know,

There is so much to learn,
While secrets rest in Nature's breast

And unnamed stars still burn.
God toiled six days to make this earth,

I think the good folks say -
Six lives we need to give full meed

Of praise--one for each day
(If love stay near).
