frost flowers quotes

Spring's an expansive time: yet I don't trust
March with its peck of dust,
Where are the flowers, the fair young flowers, that lately sprang
and stood
So gentle and so beautiful, should perish with the flowers.
the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
The Frost performs its secret ministry,
Unhelped by any wind. The owlet's cry
Slowly the night blooms, unfurling
Flowers of darkness, covering
The trellised sky, becoming
A bouquet of blackness
Dule and wae for the order sent our lads to the Border;
The English, for ance, by guile won the day:
Eyes seeking the response of eyes
Bring out the stars, bring out the flowers,
All out of doors looked darkly in at him
Through the thin frost, almost in separate stars,
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
