Home Thoughts from Abroad

Memories of this green coolness
Will have to sustain me all through the summer

OH, to be in England now that April ’s there
And whoever wakes in England sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough        
In England—now!

(Robert Browning)
