Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
581. March
 
By Charles Henry Webb
 
 
THE EARTH seems a desolate mother,—
  Betrayed like the princess of old,
The ermine stripped from her shoulders,
  And her bosom all naked and cold.
 
But a joy looks out from her sadness,        5
  For she feels with a glad unrest
The throb of the unborn summer
  Under her bare, brown breast.
