Three by Tabb V

Quatrains by Father John Banister Tabb.

The Snowdrop

Behold, from winter's sleeping side
   The sacramental power
Of Nature fashioneth a bride
   As fair as Eden's flower.

(October 1892)

To a Wood-Robin

Lo, where the blooming woodland wakes
   From wintry slumbers long,
Thy heart, a bud of silence, breaks
   To ecstasy of song.

(1894)

To the Babe Niva

Niva, Child of Innocence,
   Dust to dust we go;
Thou, when winter wooed thee hence,
   Wentest snow to snow.

(1894)

The Poetry of Father Tabb (1928) pp. 325, 329, 347.
