"I Heard a Music Sweet To-day"
Random Poetry List VI
I heard a music sweet to-day,
A simple olden tune,
And thought of yellow leaves of May
And bursting buds of June,
Of dewdrops sparkling on a spray
Until the thirst of noon.
A golden primrose in the rain
Out of the green did grow
Ah! sweet of life in Winter's wane
When airs of April blow!
Then drifted with the changing strain
Into a dream of snow.
Thomas MacDonagh (Irish, 1875-1916)
