The Return of Spring
 
        
(Renouveau)
By Charles D’Orleans

NOW Time throws off his cloak again
Of ermined frost, and wind, and rain,
And clothes him in the embroidery
Of glittering sun and clear blue sky.
With beast and bird the forest rings,        5
Each in his jargon cries or sings;
And Time throws off his cloak again
Of ermined frost, and wind, and rain.
 
River, and fount, and tinkling brook
Wear in their dainty livery        10
Drops of silver jewelry;
In new-made suit they merry look;
And Time throws off his cloak again
Of ermined frost, and wind, and rain.
