Last Line: Most kind to me.
Alternate Author Name(s): Brown, T. E.
Subject(s): Wind

SING, Zephyr, sing,
Shed from your dusky wing
The violets.
Make music with your golden frets --
Sing, Zephyr, sing!

Sigh, Zephyr, sigh!
Give passion to the sky!
The tawny south
Has no such odorous mouth --
Sigh, Zephyr, sigh!

Sue, Zephyr, sue!
Bring earth the sunny blue,
The pearly mist
With new-born love-fire kissed --
Sue, Zephyr, sue!

Sip, Zephyr, sip!
The primrose lends her lip,
The crocus thrills,
Love hides among the daffodils --
Sip, Zephyr, sip!

Seek, Zephyr, seek!
The vermeil of my lady's cheek!
So seeking, sipping, suing, sighing, singing,
While old Time his flight is winging,
Tell her to be
Most kind to me.
