Patterns

I walk down the garden-paths,
And all the daffodils
Are blowing, and the bright blue squills.

   Your colours everywhere,
   All through each crowded street,
   And meet

A Winter Ride

Who shall declare the joy of the running!
Who shall tell of the pleasures of flight!
Springing and spurning the tufts of wild heather,
Sweeping, wide-winged, through the blue dome of light.
