The Coming-In of Summer
Yesterday a swallow Cuckoo-song to-day, And anon will follow All the flight of May, For Summer is a-coming in. Corncrake's ancient sorrow Pains the evening hush, But the dawn to-morrow Gladdens with the thrush-- And Summer is a-coming in. Oh! laburnum yellow, Lilac and the rose, Chestnut shadow mellow In my garden-close, And Summer, Summer coming in! Lo, with shield and arrow, Burnished helm and spear, Flower and leaflet narrow Rank on rank appear-- King Summer is a-coming in! Summer, haste and hallow Something of the Spring, Which is harsh and callow Till thy herald sing-- Oh! Summer is a-coming in!
