SPRING'S WOOING, by            
First Line: Spring smiled this morning
Last Line: Spring must pass.
Subject(s): Spring

Spring smiled this morning
Through a windowpane,
And away went capering.
I chased her in vain
Some toll to take,
And found yellow jonquils
In her wake.

Spring woke me from slumber
With a breathy sigh
That brushed my cheek
As she frisked by.
I wondered just
What her gift would be --
'Twas a blustery gust.

Spring kissed my lips today
And wept in rapture;
While she laughed at her tears
I made sure her capture.
Upon the warm earth's breast
The sparkling drops fell greenly.
Spring was gay dressed.

Spring held in warm embrace
Offers sweet flowers,
Travail of sun and wind
And gentle showers.
Tender farewell, alas!
Summer's hot breath comes,
Spring must pass.
