Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.  1918.

57. Morning-Glory


IN this meadow starred with spring 
Shepherds kneel before their king. 
Mary throned, with dreaming eyes, 
Gowned in blue like rain-washed skies, 
Lifts her tiny son that he         5
May behold their courtesy. 
And green-smocked children, awed and good, 
Bring him blossoms from the wood. 
  
Clear the sunlit steeples chime 
Mary’s coronation-time.  10
Loud the happy children quire 
To the golden-windowed morn; 
While the lord of their desire 
Sleeps below the crimson thorn.
