Spring Song

WELCOME, bright and sunny spring!

Oh, what joy and light you bring!

Meadows green and pretty flowers,

Pleasant walks and happy hours.

First the pretty snowdrop, see

Drop her bell so tenderly;

Then the crocus, golden bright,

Lifts its head into the light.

Ah! The daisies now have come,

Sprinting on the grassy lawn;

And the buttercup of gold

Its bright beauty doth unfold.  

Hark! The little birds they sing,

"Welcome, bright and sunny spring!"

And the little children's feet

Patter down the village street,

Into woods and meadows fair

Primroses and violets there

Some to pick, and some to sing,

"Welcome, happy, joyous spring!"
