The Newcomers
By Max Michelson
From “May in the City”

  SPRING has come in the city;
And the sun and the rain,
And a thousand spirits swarming from God knows where,
Push the buried grasses
And pull them,        5
Calling: “Go out! jump out!”
And these little ones break through,
Wink at us and taunt:
“We are naked, fresh, and green,
And you are not!”        10
