Spring

painting by Claude Monet (1840-1926), Le Printemps, Giverny (1900)

The sunshine seeks my little room
To tell me Paris streets are gay;
That children cry the lily bloom
All up and down the leafy way;
That half the town is mad with May,
With flame of flag and boom of bell:
For Carnival is King to-day;
So pen and page, awhile farewell.

Poem by
Robert William Service
