Grand Spring Song



Grand spring song

How fair is our land when days grow longer
How fair is our land when sun takes hold
When winter’s last chill is ever forgotten
Flowery petals will soon unfold

A lassie awakes to cherish the weather
All her thoughts are light as a feather
Her dress is of linen with colours bright
And she has somewhere to be tonight

She enters the wood by light of a lantern
Searches until she finds the spring
And there she sits down and listens closely
Birds chirping sweet as badgers sing

The forest is fair when days grow longer
And up there ahead a warming sight
When she greets the lad that promised he’d be there
With hugs and kisses all through the night

How fair is our land when days grow longer
How fair is our land when sun takes hold
When winter’s last chill is ever forgotten
Flowery petals will soon unfold
