Subject(s): Spring


OH, crimson forges of the East!
South winds thy bellows blow,
The world from thee new life has leased.

The good King Winter, late deceased,
He died because thou burned him so;
Oh, crimson forges of the East!

New gowns for nature, man, and beast,
Thy daughter Spring has brought; we know
The world from thee new life has leased.

The diamond day thy marriage priest
Has thrown his flowers to and fro,
Oh, crimson forges of the East!

We come with gladness to thy feast,
Thy sons and daughters, friend and foe,
The world from thee new life has leased.

Our tides of joy are so increased,
Highwater-marks all go!
Oh, crimson forges of the East!
The world from thee new life has leased.
