Rupert Brooke (1887–1915).  Collected Poems. 1916.
  
VI. Other Poems
7. Song
  
ALL suddenly the wind comes soft,
  And Spring is here again;
And the hawthorn quickens with buds of green,
  And my heart with buds of pain.
  
My heart all Winter lay so numb,        5
  The earth so dead and frore,
That I never thought the Spring would come,
  Or my heart wake any more.
  
But Winter’s broken and earth has woken,
  And the small birds cry again;       10
And the hawthorn hedge puts forth its buds,
  And my heart puts forth its pain.
