Rivers to the Sea  (1915) 
Sara Teasdale
Macmillan Company page 19


The roofs are shining from the rain,
 The sparrows twitter as they fly,
And with a windy April grace
 The little clouds go by.

Yet the back-yards are bare and brown
 With only one unchanging tree—
I could not be so sure of Spring
 Save that it sings in me.
