Amy Lowell - Monadnock in Early Spring lyrics
Cloud-topped and splendid, dominating all
The little lesser hills which compa** thee,
Thou standest, bright with April's buoyancy,
Yet holding Winter in some shaded wall
Of stern, steep rock; and startled by the call
Of Spring, thy trees flush with expectancy
And cast a cloud of crimson, silently,
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/amy-lowell/-/monadnock-in-early-spring.html]
Above thy snowy crevices where fall
Pale shrivelled oak leaves, while the snow beneath
Melts at their phantom touch. Another year
Is quick with import. Such each year has been.
Unmoved thou watchest all, and all bequeath
Some j**el to thy diadem of power,
Thou pledge of greater majesty unseen.
