SWEET and golden afternoon
Of the infant summer,
Joyous one!
Merry trills of laughter soon
Peep and tremble and embrace,
Flee and turn again to race
Through the sun;
Morning, slow old nurse, is lost,
Birds and souls and flowers are tost
In the sunlit pentecost —
Winter's done!

Birds are chirping melodies
Made of clear notes vanishing
In the sky!
Yonder hum the yellow bees,
Hither sway the tender branches,
Mad young winds in avalanches
Scurry by;
All the flowers bloom a-blushing,
Rapture through the soul is rushing,
Suddenly there comes a hushing —
Night is nigh!
