Green, green and green again . . .
from Five Sonnets for Men's Voices (T.B.B.) a cappella
Green, green, and green again, and greener still,
spring toward summer bends the immortal bow,
and northward breaks the wave of daffodil,
and northward breaks the wave of summer's snow:
green, green, and green again, and greener yet,
wide as this forest is, which counts its leaves,
wide as this kingdom, in a green sea set,
which round its shores perpetual blossom weaves -
green, green, and green again, and green once more,
the season finds its term -- then greenest, even . . .
