Written In Early Spring Twenty-Thirteen

Ah that last spring, my love!
We would sit in the forenoons, 
Lone and free meadows grew almonds;
And recite my wet vaporing lines—
Praising the arriving nomads, and the tranquil country.
O the dusky woods’ view all around
And like we lolled in their restful lap.
And that history-man, my far-friend,
Would read it and re-read, and stop, and sigh!
And then slowly wrap up wiping with his finger
Tears ‘d accumulate on his lids—
As beautiful as are the sunlit dews in early-summer’s dawn 
Or tiny diamonds glimmering on the gowns of 
Arabian belly-dancers.
And see this spring h’w has begun!
It seems this whole spring, my love!
We have to be indoors in fear.
