A Prayer In Spring

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.

Thanks to whoever wrote this poem, now I don’t have to do my homework.
Who ever wrote this poem they did a good job and i think it represent the wonderful joy of spring and it will be nice because spring is coming up and it is great for easter.
I guess it was the reader's voice that threw me off
terrible poem whoever wrote this should get a rope
