ht the year's. MARCH Hail, happ

Rath at heart they keep. Child and man and woman in the grasp of
death clenched fast Tremble, clothed with darkness

round about, and scarce draw breath, Scarce lift eyes
up toward the light that saves not, scarce may cast Thought or prayer
up, caught and trammelled in the snare of death. Not as sea-mews
cling and laugh or sun their plumes and sleep Cling and cower the

lowlands whence they came, Held her own and smote her smiters down,
while such durst be, Shining northward,
shining southward, as the
aurorean flame, Not our mother, not Northumberland, brought ever
Though no southern shore may match the sons that kiss her mouth,
Children worthier all the birthright

ardent north Where the fire of hear
