„Oh, to be in England
Now that April's there“

"Home-Thoughts, from Abroad", line 1.
Dramatic Romances and Lyrics (1845)
Contesto: Oh, to be in England
Now that April's there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brush-wood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf.
