Withered Snowdrops

THEY came in the early spring-days,
With the first refreshing showers
And I watched the growing beauty

In the crowded hives of men;
Heart-weary of building and spoiling,

The Old School Clock

'Twas a quaint old clock with a quaint old face,
and great iron weights and chain.

To labor for thee, and to make thy life
