The Soul of April:

OVER the wintry threshold
Who comes with joy to-day,
So frail, yet so enduring,
To triumph o'er dismay?

Image by Georges Lévêque  for Mon Jardin and Ma Maison as seen on linenandlavender.net, here: http://www.linenandlavender.net/2012/04/jardins-du-botrain.html

Ah, quick her tears are springing,
And quickly they are dried,
For sorrow walks before her,
But gladness walks beside.

Image by Georges Lévêque  for Mon Jardin and Ma Maison as seen on linenandlavender.net, here: http://www.linenandlavender.net/2012/04/jardins-du-botrain.html

She comes with gusts of laughter,—
The music as of rills;
With tenderness and sweetness,—
The wisdom of the hills.

Her hands are strong to comfort,
Her heart is quick to heed.
She knows the signs of sadness,
She knows the voice of need.

There is no living creature,
However poor or small,
But she will know its trouble
And hasten to its call.

Oh, well they fare forever,
By mighty dreams possessed,
Whose hearts have lain a moment
On that eternal breast.
                    
           ~"The Soul of April" by Bliss Carmen from April Airs, 1916
