Blow, breeze of spring! Blow soft and ring The snowdrop bells, that they may bring From their beds the flowerets fair! Ringing soft -- prepare! prepare! 'Tis time to rise, With smiling eyes, The bridegroom sun is in the skies! Blow, breeze of spring! Blow soft and ring The snowdrop bells that they may bring Flowers on her bride-path to fling, Flowers to her who is my spring, To bid her rise, With smiling eyes, Her [bridal]1 sun is in the skies!
