Song on May Morning


Now the bright morning star, day's harbinger, comes dancing from the east, and leads with her The Flowery May. Who from her green lap throws the yellow cowslip, and the pale primrose. Hail, bounteous May! That dost inspire mirth, and youth, and warm desire. Woods and groves are of thy dressing. Hill and dale both boast thy blessing! Thus we salute thee with our early song and welcome thee, and wish thee long.

Happy May Day . . .
