She Longs for the Country
By Marya Zaturensky
From “Spinners”

IT is the May-time now,
And in a place I know
Some girl God will allow
To see the cowslips blow;
And the hyacinths, the fern        5
That grow by the riversides;
Narcissi, white and stern
Like sad unwilling brides.
Some other girl will run
And, dancing through the grass,        10
Will laugh in the wholesome sun,
And feel the sweet hours pass.
Laugh and be merry—oh,
Laugh! Laugh, and play for me!
Go where the sweet flowers grow,        15
And see what I cannot see!
