Spring

By Christina Rossetti

There is no time like Spring,
When life’s alive in everything,
Before new nestlings sing,
Before cleft swallows speed their journey back
Along the trackless track–
God guides their wing,
He spreads their table that they nothing lack–
Before the daisy grow a common flower,
Before the sun has power–
To scorch the world up in his moontide hour.
