The Marvel
By George O’Neil
From “Wings of Spring”

UP on the hill where trees were bare
  I saw her go the first spring dawn.
The thrushes came while she was there
  And sang when she had gone.
I looked at noon, and saw how light        5
  Had crept into the apple row.
“The hill,” I said, “will soon be white
  With April apple snow.”
So I was sure that I had learned
  Why thrushes sang where she went by—        10
Yet on the day that she returned
  The leaves began to die.
