ON MAY MORNING, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now the bright morning-star, day's harbinger
Last Line: And welcome thee, and wish thee long.
Variant Title(s): Song On May Morning
Subject(s): May (month); Morning Star

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 doth inspire
Mith 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.
