Spring in China
By Elizabeth J. Coatsworth
From “Vermilion Seals”

THE EARTH’S coat is the green of young willows
Beside brown streams.
It is embroidered over with flowering trees—
Plum, peach and apricot.
Her sleeves are scented wondrously;        5
Her hair is unbound in the wind.
Even the moon is so enamoured
That ere dusk he climbs the stairs of heaven to behold her.
