A Spring Song
By Mabel D. Carry
SMELL the sweet wind
From far woodlands—
How it comes
Soft breezes,        5
          Sharp breezes,
In clear pureness
From high hilltops!
Feel the wild wind
In the city streets—        10
How it comes
New strongness,
          Fresh gladness,
In light laughter        15
To a wearying world!
Hark you, free wind,
Tapping at my window
As you go
          Singing        20
Glad songs,
          Mad songs,
New love take to
Mon camarade—mon chéri!
