To an Elder Poet

By George Sterling

Now stir the blossoms in the grass;
    But oh! the fadeless flowers you bring
    Are children of a wilder Spring,
And pass not tho' the seasons pass.

Their breath along the Singing-Way
    Is more of rapture than of rest;
    The undeparting blooms attest
What rains and winds of yesterday!

A Wine of Wizardry and Other Poems by George Sterling, A.M Roberston, 1909.
