[250] So to me, in a doubtful day
     Of chill and slowly greening spring,
Low stooping from the cloudy gray,
     The wild-birds sang or seemed to sing.

They vanished in the misty air,
     The song went with them in their flight;
But lo! they left the sunset fair,
     And in the evening there was light.

April, 1864.
