Editor's Selection of Poems
The Throstle

by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Summer is coming,summer is coming.
I know it, I know it, I know it. 
Light again, leaf again, life again, love again,
Yes my wild little poet.

Sing the new year under the blue. 
Last year you sang it as gladly. 
New, new, new, new ! Is it then so new 
That you should carol so madly ?

Love again, song again, nest again, young again, 
Never a prophet so crazy ! 
And hardly a daisy as yet, little friend,
See, there is hardly a daisy.

Here again, here, here, here, happy year ! 
O warble unchidden, unbidden ! 
Summer is coming, is coming, my dear,
And all the winters are hidden.
