But not petals from a dahlia,
Rather boxes full of

hours, and
A wagon of clear dreams,
A big castle with its fairies:
All the petals that form the
soul of

Spring in New
Too green the springing
April grass, Too Blue the
silver-speckled sky, for
me to linger here, alas,
While happy winds go
laughing by, Wasting the
golden hours indoors,
Washing windows and
scrubbing floors.
Too wonderful the April
night, To faintly sweet
the first May flowers, The
stars too gloriously
bright, The me to spend
the evening hours, When
fields are fresh and
streams are leaping,
wearied, exhausted,
dully sleeping.
~Claude McKay
