Overview

Excerpt from Around the Year, in the Garden: A Seasonable Guide and Reminder for Work With Vegetables, Fruits, and Flowers, and Under Glass

Invitation

In golden April weather,
In sun and wind and rain,
Let us fare forth and follow
Beneath the spring's first swallow
By budding break and heather
To the good brown soil again!

With rake and seeds and sower,
And hoe and line and reel,
When the meadows shrill with "peeping"
And the old world wakes from sleeping,
Who wouldn't be a grower
That has any heart to feel?

Delve in! The year's before us;
Spring's promise fills the air.
Descendants of Antæus,
The brown earth's touch can free us,
Renew us and restore us,
From the hand o' carking care.

Work, through the summer golden,
And through the autumn's glow.
Till the months lay down their burden
In the full garden's guerdon,
And earth, once more enfolden,
Sleeps warm beneath the snow.

And for our work - though showers
And autumn frosts destroy -
Our greatest pay's not measured
In fruit and flower we've treasured,
But in the golden hours
That brought us health and joy!
