Poem by Gerald Massey
GAILY the Sun woos the Spring for his Bride With kisses all warm and golden; Till the life at her heart she no longer may hide, And the wealth of her lover is unfolden. With kisses, sweet kisses, the mellow Rains start The virgin flowers a-blossom: And ripen their beauty till fragrant lips part, And Love's jewel gleams rich in their bosom. Faint with love wingeth the wantoning Wind, And yearns as its heart were a-breaking, And kisses sweet kisses, till buds be untwined; And the young leaves all are awaking. The wrinkled old Sea sidles up the sands, And lavishes kisses in showers On the Earth, till the Grey-beard's young darling stands All dressed in her bridal flowers! And there's nothing so dainty-sweet in life As to kiss the Maid, glowing and tender, Till the heart of the Wife, giveth up in the strife, Full-flowering in Love's splendour.
