April Snow In Kansas

I thank the April snow,
Whose magic sent from wood
And field a hungry brood
To be my friends a blessed day or so;___

Hedge sparrows, yellow-billed,
Black-capped, the cardinal
Of joyous heart, and all
The mouse-breast juncos. To my board crumb-filled

With the snow they came, and now
As softly as snow thaws
They are gone, their little claws
Clasping hedge twigs again or woodland bough.
