In Memoriam A. H. H.: 83. Dip down upon the northern shore

Dip down upon the northern shore
  O sweet new-year delaying long;
  Thou doest expectant nature wrong;
  Delaying long, delay no more.
  What stays thee from the clouded noons,
  Thy sweetness from its proper place?
  Can trouble live with April days,
  Or sadness in the summer moons?
  Bring orchis, bring the foxglove spire,
  The little speed well's darling blue,
  Deep tulips dash'd with fiery dew,
  Laburnums, dropping-wells of fire.

  O thou new-year, delaying long,
  Delayest the sorrow in my blood,
  That longs to burst a frozen bud
  And flood a fresher throat with song.
