Comments about Eliza Allen Starr
With the spring come happy voices
On the street,
Merry greetings, infant laughter
Gay and sweet.
With the spring what rush of waters
To the sea!
Brooks run races down the mountains
In their glee.

Far from men-
Everywhere are wild flowers springing,
Banks of bloom;
Snowy clusters break the bearded
