Spring
By Gerard Manley Hopkins
Nothing is so beautiful as spring
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely
and lush;
Thrushs eggs look little low heavens, and
thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and
wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him
sing;
The glassy pear tree leaves and blooms, they

Choose Something Like a Star


By Robert Frost
O Star (the fairest one in sight),
We grant your loftiness the right
To some obscurity of cloud -It will not do to say of night,
Since dark is what brings out your
light.
Some mystery becomes the proud.
But to be wholly taciturn
In your reserve is not allowed.
Say something to us we can learn
By heart and when alone repeat.
Say something! And it says "I
burn."
But say with what degree of heat.

The Daffodils
By William Wordsworth
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high oer vales
and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils,
Beside the lake, beneath the
trees
Fluttering and dancing in the
breeze.
Continuous as the stars that
shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending
line

The Cloud
By Percy Bysshe Shelley
I bring fresh showers for the thirsting
flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when
laid
In their noonday dreams.
From my wings are shaken the dews
that waken
The sweet buds every one,
When rocked to rest on their mothers
breast,
As she dances about the sun.
I wield the flail of the lashing hail
And whiten the green plains under,
And then again I dissolve it in rain,
And laugh as I pass in thunder.
