C Richard Miles (1961)
A Softer Day
It was a softer day today
With hints of spring breathed in the air:
Scents of damp soil infused with rain
From passing showers, small and spare.
Yet, in that softness, whispered chill
Of winter still remained in part,
An echo of unkindlier days
Which saddened my new-gladdened heart.
Soft spring, dispel the rising fear
That frost will come and kill the bloom
Of daffodil and cherry tree.
Soft spring, bring sun to chase the gloom.
