Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
715. Awakening
 
By Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
 
 
NEVER yet was a springtime,
  Late though lingered the snow,
That the sap stirred not at the whisper
  Of the south wind, sweet and low;
Never yet was a springtime        5
  When the buds forgot to blow.
 
Ever the wings of the summer
  Are folded under the mould;
Life, that has known no dying,
  Is Love’s, to have and to hold,        10
Till, sudden, the burgeoning Easter!
  The song! the green and the gold!
