[369] And when once more by Beaver Dam
     The meadow-lark outsang,
And once again on all the hills
     The early violets sprang,

And all the windy pasture slopes
     Lay green within the arms
Of creeks that bore the salted sea
     To pleasant inland farms,

The smith filed off the chains he forged,
     The jail-bolts backward fell;
And youth and hoary age came forth
     Like souls escaped from hell.

1877.
