by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

O wind, where have you been
Language: English 
O wind, where have you been,
  That you blow so sweet?
Among the violets
  Which blossom at your feet.

The honeysuckle waits
  For Summer and for heat.
But violets in the chilly Spring
  Make the turf so sweet.
