?. When June is come, then all the day [sung text not yet checked]

When June is come, then all the day
I'll sit with my love in the scented hay:
And watch the sunshot palaces high,
That the white clouds build in the breezy sky.

She singeth, and I do make her a song,
And read sweet poems the whole day long:
Unseen as we lie in our haybuilt home,
O, life is delight when June is come.

?. This good Yuletide [sung text not yet checked]

Crown Winter with green,
And give him good drink
To physic his spleen
Or ever he think.
 
His mouth to be bowl
His feet to the fire;
And let him, good soul,
No comfort desire.
 
So merry he be,
I bid him abide:
And merry be we
This good Yuletide.

?. Spring goeth all in white [sung text not yet checked]

Spring goeth all in white,
Crowned with milk-white may:
In fleecy flocks of light
O'er heaven the white clouds stray:

White butterflies in the air;
White daisies prank the ground:
The cherry and hoary pear
Scatter their snow around.

?. On frosty morns [sung text not yet checked]

On frosty morns with the woods aflame, down, down 
The golden spoils fall thick from the chestnut crown. 
May Autumn in tranquil glory her riches spend, 
With mellow apples her orchard-branches bend.
