William Stanley Braithwaite, ed. (1878–1962).  Anthology of Magazine Verse for 1920.  1920.
 
Alone in Spring
 
Caroline Giltinan
 
 
I NEVER met the Spring alone before:
The flowers, birds, the loveliness of trees,
For with me always there was one I love—
And love is shield against such gifts as these.
 
But now I am alone, alone, alone;        5
The days and nights one long remembering.
Did other Aprils that we shared possess
The hurting beauty of this living Spring?
 
I never met the Spring alone before—
My starving grief—this radiance of gold!…        10
To be alone, when Spring is being born,
One should be dead—or suddenly grown old.
