[ dreamed that, as 1 wandered by the way, Bare winter was suddenly changed to spring, And gentle odors led my Hteps astray, Mixed with a sound of waters murmuring Along a shelving bank of turf which lay Under a copse, and hardly dared to fling t green arm round the bosom of the stream, i at kissed ït and then f led, as thou mightest in a d rea ra. Fhere grew pied wiüd-tíowers and violeta, Daisies, those pearled Arcturi of the earth, Che constellated flower that never sets; Faint oxlips; tender blue-bells, at whose birth ?he sod scarce heaved, and that tall flower that wets lts ïnother's face with heaven-collected tears. When the low wind its play mate's voice it hears. And in the warm hedge grew lush eglantine, Green cow-bind, and the moonlight-colored May. And cherry blossoms, and wbite-cups, whose wine as the bright dew yet drained not by the day; And wild rose, and ivy serpentine, With its dark buds and leaves, wandering astray ; And flowers azure, black, and streaked with gold, Fairer than any wakened eyea behold. And nearer to the river's trembling edge There grew broad fiag-flowers,purple, prankt with white. Lnd etarry river-buds among the aedge; And floating water-lillies, broad and bright, Vhich lit the oak that overhung the hedge With moonlight beams of their own watery Ught; Lnd bulrushes, and reeds of such deep green As soothed the dazzled eve with solar sheen.
