  Spring In War Time  

I feel the Spring far off, far off,
    The faint far scent of bud and leaf--
Oh how can Spring take heart to come
    To a world in grief,
        Deep grief?

The sun turns north, the days grow long,
    Later the evening star grows bright--
How can the daylight linger on
    For men to fight,
        Still fight?

The grass is waking in the ground,
    Soon it will rise and blow in waves--
How can it have the heart to sway
    Over the graves,
        New graves?

Under the boughs where lovers walked
    The apple-blooms will shed their breath--
But what of all the lovers now
    Parted by death,
        Gray Death?
