First Line: Now spring comes up the world, sweetheart
Last Line: Then glad the whole day through.
Subject(s): Spring; Happiness


Now spring comes up the world, sweetheart,
What shall we find to do?
The hills grow purple in the rain,
The sea is gold and blue;
The door is open to the sun,
The window to the sky;
The odor of the cherry bough,
A freighted dream, goes by;
The spruces tell the southwest wind
Where the white windflowers are;
The brooks are babbling in the dusk
To one great yellow star;
In all the April-coloured land,
Where glints and murmurs stray,
There's not a being that draws breath
But will go mad to-day --
Go mad with piercing ecstasy,
Afoot, afloat, awing,
And wild with all the aching sweet
Delirium of spring.
Now April fills the world with love,
There's not a thing to do
But to be happy all night long,
Then glad the whole day through.
