28. Song
 
By Florence Earle Coates
 
 
FOR me the jasmine buds unfold
  And silver daisies star the lea,
The crocus hoards the sunset gold,
  And the wild rose breathes for me.
I feel the sap through the bough returning,        5
  I share the skylark’s transport fine,
I know the fountain’s wayward yearning,
  I love, and the world is mine!
 
I love, and thoughts that sometime grieved,
  Still well remembered, grieve not me;        10
From all that darkened and deceived
  Upsoars my spirit free.
For soft the hours repeat one story,
  Sings the sea one strain divine;
My clouds arise all flushed with glory—        15
  I love, and the world is mine!
