Declaiming Waters none may dread -Commenta
But Waters that are still
Are so for that most fatal cause
In Nature - they are full.
The Dandelion's pallid TubeCommenta
Astonishes the Grass -
And Winter instantly becomes
An infinite Alas -
The tube uplifts a signal Bud
And then a shouting Flower -
The Proclamation of the Suns
That sepulture is o'er.
The Bobolink is gone - the Rowdy of the Meadow -Commenta
And no one swaggers now but me -
The Presbyterian Birds can now resume the Meeting
He gaily interrupted that overflowing Day
When opening the Sabbath in their afflictive Way
He bowed to Heaven instead of Earth
And shouted Let us pray.
