Sonnet LXIII The Gossamer

O'er faded heath-flowers spun, or thorny furze, The filmy Gossamer is lightly spread;
Waving in every sighing air that stirs, As Fairy fingers had entwined the thread:
A thousand trembling orbs of lucid dew Spangle the texture of the fai...

The First Swallow

The gorse is yellow on the heath,
The banks with speedwell flowers are gay,
The oaks are budding, and, beneath,

High wave the reeds in the transparent floods,
The oak its sear and sallow foliage shedding,
