< Spring >

 
Songs of Innocence (1789, 32)

Sound the Flute! 
Now it's mute! 
Bird's delight, 
Day and night, 
Nightingale, 
In the dale, 
Lark in sky,- 
Merrily, 
Merrily merrily, to welcome in the Year. 

Little boy, 
Full of joy; 
Little girl, 
Sweet and small; 
Cock does crow, 
So do you; 
Merry voice, 
Infant noise; 
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the Year. 

Little lamb, 
Here I am; 
Come and lick 
My white neck; 
Let me pull 
Your soft wool; 
Let me kiss 
Your soft face; 
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the Year.
