ALL suddenly the wind comes soft,

  And Spring is here again;

And the hawthorn quickens with buds of green,

  And my heart with buds of pain.


My heart all Winter lay so numb

  The earth so dead and frore,

That I never thought the Spring would come,

  Or my heart wake any more.


But Winter’s broken and earth has woken,

  And the small birds cry again;

And the hawthorn hedge puts forth its buds,

  And my heart puts forth its pain.
