O all these April dead,
whose cartloads of blackness are made to pass
through blinding glare:
as if, once again, their heaviness
opposed our taking grimmer things
too lightly . . . . But over there,
those who yesterday still wore pinafores
are amazed to have reached Confirmation;
and their whiteness, as brilliant as God’s throne,
softens in the shade of the first elm.
