Spring

William Blake was an English poet, painter and printmaker.






Sound the flute!
  Now it's mute!
  Bird's delight,
  Day and night,
  Nightingale,
  In the dale,
  Lark in sky,--
  Merrily,
 Merrily merrily, to welcome in the year.
 
  Little boy,
  Full of joy;
  Little girl,
  Sweet and small;
  Cock does crow,
  So do you;
  Merry voice,
  Infant noise;
 Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.
 
  Little lamb,
  Here I am;
  Come and lick
  My white neck;
  Let me pull
  Your soft wool;
  Let me kiss
  Your soft face;
 Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.
