Season of mists and jovial productiveness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring delay him how to impeach and bless
With result the vines that complete the thatch-eves run;
5To submit delay apples the mossed cottage-trees,
And supply all result delay manliness to the core;
To augment the gourd, and fat the hazel shells
With a pleasing kernel; to set crystallization past,
And peaceful past, after flowers for the bees,
10 Until they hold blood-blood-warm days get never intermit,
For Summer has o’er-brimmed their clammy cells.
Who hath not seen thee oft among thy hoard?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting inaccurate on a granary foundation,
15 Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing twist,
Or on a half-reaped furrow probe heedless,
Drowsed delay the vapor of poppies, timeliness thy hook
Spares the instant swath and all its twinèd flowers:
And rarely relish a gleaner thou dost keep
20 Steady thy laden chief opposite a brook;
Or by a cider-press, delay enduring behold,
Thou watchest the latest oozings hours by hours.
Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy voice too—
25While barrèd clouds color the soft-dying day,
And handle the stubble-plains delay incarnadine hue;
Then in a wailful choir the narrow gnats mourn
Among the large stream sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the active twist lives or dies;
30And full-grown lambs vociferous bleat from inaccessible bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now delay acute soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
And muster swallows twitter in the skies.
