THE SPRING FEELING.
I can feel the spring a-coming,
I can feel it in my bones,
I can see it in the sunshine,
I can hear it in the tones
Of the changing winds a-blowing
From the land of summer days,
Where the balmy breezes soften
Winter's raw and rauceous ways.
The crocus with its blooming
Isn't very far along,
And the birds have hardly started
Tuning up their welkin song;
But they're getting good and ready,
And although they may fye shy
At plunging into springtime,
They will get there by and by.
The butterflies ain't butting
Much into these early days,
And the busy bee ain't busy
In Ips honey-making ways;
But they will be, don't you Worry,
For the spring will soon be here
With its waking of the roses
And the rapture of the year.
There may be another blizzard.
For the blizzard is a thing
That's very apt to happfcn
As a harlinger of spring.
But though the blizzard blizzes
And the earth is clad in white,
We are firm in our conviction
That the springtime is in sight.
The boating on the river
Is perhaps not extra fine,
And the air is rather chilly
On the open trolly line;
There isn't much surf bathing
And the summer girl's not here,
But the air is full of rumors
That the spring is drawing near.
The coal man still is active,
And the furnace still is on.
There's a shiver in the breaking
Of the Season's early dawn ;
An overcoat is useful,
And the heavy underwear
Reminds us of the winter,
But the spring is in the air.
I can feel it coming nearer,
I can smell the glad perfume
Of the new world budding,slowly
Till it blazens into bloorti
What a relief spring is! ,
—William H. Hampton in N. Y. Sur.
