April in Town
#1
Lizette Woodworth Reese
1856 - 1935 USA


April in Town

Straight from the east the wind blows sharp with rain,
That just now drove its wild ranks down the street,
And westward rushed into the sunset sweet.
Spouts brawl, boughs drip and cease and drip again,

Bricks gleam; keen saffron glows each window-pane,
And every pool beneath the passing feet.
Innummerable odors fine and fleet
Are blown this way from blossoming lawn and lane.

Wet roofs show black against a tender sky;
The almond bushes in the lean-fenced square,
Beaten to the walks, show all their draggled white.

A troop of laborers comes slowly by;
One bears a draffodil, and seems to bear
A new-lit candle through the fading light.
