April Song – Sara Teasdale

April Song

  Willow, in your April gown
Delicate and gleaming,
Do you mind in years gone by
All my dreaming?

  Spring was like a call to me
That I could not answer,
I was chained to loneliness,
I, the dancer.

  Willow, twinkling in the sun,
Still your leaves and hear me,
I can answer spring at last,
Love is near me!
