Playing in the school yard after a brief sun-shower,
Rain drops gilding leaves on trees, around us tower.
Chariots and horses now clear as yesterday,
Princess courtiers surround the Queen of May.
Shouting, calling, cheering, half an hour of fun,
Running, jumping, skipping, a role for everyone.
Wooden huts around, divided room by room,
In Spring’s awaking, many a pupil did bloom.
My first love there in the doorway stood,
Alone, amazing, in morning sun-light’s flood.
Her face white and pale as of finest marble hewn,
Freckles not blemishes but as emeralds over strewn.
Oh! when she smiled light from her eyes did run.
Oh! when she smiled at me, what need had I of Sun!
