Merry Maiden Spring

Language: English

A winsome morning measure
Trips merry maiden Spring,
O'er daffodils and daisies,
To crown the Summer king.

And once the king is crowned,
And twilight 'gins to fall,
Brown Autumn slips the postern gate
At grim old Winter's call.

But soon the rosy morning
With joyous songs shall ring
And daffodils and daisies
Will welcome merry Spring.
