Returned this day, the south wind searches,
And finds young pines and budding birches;
But finds not the budding man.
For his lips could well pronounce
Words that were persuasions.
The eager fate which carried thee
Took the largest part of me:
Silent rushes the swift Lord
Through ruined systems still restored,
Perchance not he but Nature ailed,
The world and not the infant failed.
