O Lady Spring, so sweet and shy,
The whole world smiles when you pass by,
The rippling streamlets dance along
And all the birds burst into song.
A flower-embroidered carpet new
Of lovely green is laid for you,
The budding tree, the perfumed air
Bespeak a welcome everywhere.
A YEAR WITH THE FAIRIES.
