'Oh, to be in England....' (Home Thoughts, From Abroad)

'O, to be in England
Now that April 's there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England—now!......'

Robert Browning (From Home Thoughts, From Abroad)
