Spring Came Last Night

A native of Lewis County, West Virginia, author Grace Yoke White wrote the book, "Unhoarded Gold: A Book of Poems" in 1953 . I am proud to include one of these poems, titled "Spring Came Last Night" in this post.

Spring Came Last Night

The sky is clear,
Spring birds are near;
I hear their calls
On low stone walls.

The winter left with lagging feet;
With summer warmth our pulses beat;
The snow is gone, the sun is bright,
The flowers are here-spring came last night.

The sky is blue;
All hearts are true.
Sorrow slipt away;
Joy's here today.
