Poetry of Kansas

Love's Return.

Once more the blossoms bloom
    O'er meadows sweet and fair.
Once more the sweet perfume
    Of roses fills the air.
Once more the golden rays
    Of summer's sun appear.
Once more the gladsome days
    Of love and joy are here.
The love that thrills the youth___
    Ambitions that so burn___
Unto the heart, in truth,
    Thru changing years return.
And with them joy of spring
    Imbues a newer life.
And summer's song-birds sing
    Where raged dark storms of strife.
The heart that throbbed with pain
    From wounds so sorely dealt,
No longer beats in vain
    Or writhes in anguish felt.
For love again returns
    And all life's joys renew.
Emotion's altar burns
    More sacred and more true.
