Poem by Edith Nesbit
PLAGUE take the dull and dusty town, Its paved and sordid mazes, Now Spring has trimmed her pretty gown With buttercups and daisies! With half my heart I long to lie Among the flowered grasses, And hear the loving leaves that sigh As their sweet Mistress passes. Through picture-shows I make my way While flower-crowned maids go maying, And all the cultured things I say That cultured folk are saying. For I renounce Spring's darling face, With may-bloom fresh upon it: My Mistress lives in Grosvenor-place And wears a Bond-street bonnet!
