May Day
By Sara Teasdale
THE SHINING line of motors,
  The swaying motor-bus,
The prancing dancing horses
  Are passing by for us.
The sunlight on the steeple,        5
  The toys we stop to see,
The smiling passing people
  Are all for you and me.
“I love you and I love you!”—
  “And oh, I love you, too!”        10
“All of the flower girl’s lilies
  Were only grown for you!”
Fifth Avenue and April
  And love and lack of care—
The world is mad with music        15
  Too beautiful to bear.
