The snow has left the cottage top;
 The thatch moss grows in brighter green;
 And eaves in quick succession drop,
 Where grinning icicles have been,
 Pit-patting with a pleasant noise
 In tubs set by the cottage door;
 While duck and geese, with happy joys,
 Plunge in the yard pond brimming over.
 The sun peeps through the window pane:
 Which children mark with laughing eye,
 And in the wet street steal again
 To tell each other spring is night. - John Clare
