Thomas Aldrich takes us back to the time when accomplished writers contributed to more than one genre. His poetry, combined with novels, shows why he was the most adored writer of his time.
When first the crocus thrusts its point of gold Up through the still snow-drifted garden mould, And folded green things in dim woods unclose Their crinkled spears, a sudden tremor goes Into my veins and makes me kith and kin To every wild-born thing that thrills and blows.
