Spring Song
By George William Curtis (1824–1892)
A BIRD sang sweet and strong
  In the top of the highest tree;
He said, “I pour out my heart in song
  For the summer that soon shall be!”
But deep in the shady wood,        5
  Another bird sang, “I pour
My heart on the solemn solitude,
  For the springs that return no more.”
