The Spring Arrives, The Beauteous Spring
To Hrafn Andres Hardarson
Friend of the snows, friend, here the honeysuckles
Fill the light sky with their candid souls,
Time is like a song and in the splendid gardens
Breezes trembling with love move the hearts of the leaves.
Translated from the French of Athanase Vantchev de Thracy by Norton Hodges
