    The Holy Snowdrops

    Of old, with goodwill from the skies,
    The holy angels came;
    They walked the earth with human eyes,
    And passed away in flame.

    But now the angels are withdrawn,
    Because the flowers can speak;
    With Christ, we see the dayspring dawn
    In every snowdrop meek.

    God sends them forth; to God they tend;
    Not less with love they burn,
    That to the earth they lowly bend,
    And unto dust return.

    No miracle in them hath place,
    For this world is their home;
    An utterance of essential grace
    The angel-snowdrops come.
