Sara Teasedale: April Song

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!
