In Springtime Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


My garden blazes brightly with the rose bush and the peachA
And the koil sings above it in the siris by the wellB
From the creeper covered trellis comes the squirrel's chattering speechA
And the blue jay screams and flutters where the cheery sat bhai dwellB
But the rose has lost its fragrance and the koil's note is strangeC
I am sick of endless sunshine sick of blossom burdened boughD
Give me back the leafless woodlands where the winds of Springtime rangeC
Give me back one day in England for it's Spring in England nowD
Through the pines the gusts are booming o'er the brown fields blowing chillE
From the furrow of the ploughshare streams the fragrance of the loamF
And the hawk nests on the cliffside and the jackdaw in the hillE
And my heart is back in England 'mid the sights and sounds of HomeF
But the garland of the sacrifice this wealth of rose and peach isG
Ah koil little koil singing on the siris boughD
In my ears the knell of exile your ceaseless bell like speech isG
Can you tell me aught of England or of Spring in England nowD
