Text

A song of spring once more we sing
As winter flies away,
And changeful hours bring sun and show'rs
To weave a crown for May;
With heart and voice we all rejoice,
On this returning day.

For once again the promise-strain
Floats down from days of yore,
That fruits of earth shall wake to birth
To bless the toiler's store.
Each annual round with bounties crowned,
Till time shall be no more.
