Lark Music

By Arthur Davison Ficke

(Variation on a Theme by George Sterling)

Spring fields will soon be growing
To fruitful green again.
World-over, men are sowing
The seed in the ploughed plain.

Where rich the soil lies waiting,
Men plant the harvest there;
But the free lark sows music
On the unfruitful air.
