Poetry Friday: The Shamrock by Maurice Francis Egan

April 13th, 2007 (10:26 am)
thoughtful

Current Mood: thoughtful
Current Song: Citizen Kane score music

When April rains make flowers bloom
And Johnny-jump-ups come to light,
And clouds of color and perfume
Float from the orchards pink and white,
I see my shamrock in the rain,
An emerald spray with raindrops set,
Like jewels on Spring's coronet,
So fair, and yet it breathes of pain.

-- The Shamrock by Maurice Francis Egan
