On May mornings.

Poem By : John Milton

Now the bright morning Sun,
Comes dancing from the East.

leading with her the Flowers of May,
who from her green lap throws
The 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 valley, doth boast a blessing.

Thus we salute thee with our early Song,
And welcome you, and then wish you a so long.
