The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 10, Issue 1 (April 1, 1935)



Magnolia petals, pink and white,
Dapple the lawn for my delight;
Scattered like star-dust in the night
By Winter's dying breath.

Green-budding branches swinging low,
Whisper secrets of long ago,
Secrets that you and I might know,
Could we but understand.

Nodding narcissi, row on row,
Polyanthus and poppies grow.
What though blustering winds still blow?
Springtime has come again!
