THE

POETICAL WORKS

OF

HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW.

Early Poems.

(WRITTEN FOR THE MOST PART DURING MY COLLEGE LIFE, AND ALL OF

THEM BEFORE THE AGE OF NINETEEN.]

AN APRIL DAY.
When the warm sun, that brings
Seed-time and harvest, has returned again,
'Tis sweet to visit the still wood, where springs

The first flower of the plain.

I love the season well,
When forest glades are teeming with bright forms,
Nor dark and many-folded clouds foretell

The coming-on of storms.

From the earth's loosened mould
The sapling draws its sustenance, and thrives ;
Though stricken to the heart with Winter's cold,

The drooping tree revives.

The softly-warbled song
Comes from the pleasant woods, and coloured wings
Glance quick in the bright sun, that moves along

The forest openings.

When the bright sunset fills
The silver woods with light, the green slope throws
Its shadows in the hollows of the hills,

And wide the upland glows.
