"Song on May Morning"

Random Poetry List XXXI

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 doth boast thy blessing.
Thus we salute thee with our early song,
And welcome thee, and wish thee long.

John Milton (English, 1608-1674)
