The Pipe of Desire, and Other Plays

Excerpt from The Pipe of Desire, and Other Plays Scene. A level spot covered with grass and flooded with sunshine. At the rear lies a boulder, beyond which one sees the great trees of an ancient forest, a ravine, and a distant valley with a suggestion of human habitation. It is the first day of spring. A dozen of the elves are bustling about and working merrily. One has seeds in a sack which he passes to another, who, standing on the boulder, scatters them to the winds; others are removing dead leaves from the flowers, and with their breath melting the last frost. The fallow field lies in the sun, The waters are rising through the woods, And the bright morning, Which yesterday smiled upon the white coverletOf sleeping nature, Now gives with each breathNew life to the little folkOf earth and air.The fawn sees with wonderThe dry twigs become green;And the old bear, uprearing, Yawns with yearning.Even the stones, Freed by the flying frost, Roll joyfully into the valley.An old bullfrog down by the rockHad terrified the little brook, And filled her with dismay;I caught him by his trailing leg, And for her pardon made him beg, And taught her how, in play, To toss him in a waterfall, To imitate his sombre callAnd, laughing, glide away.
