Julie, I look forward to hearing it sung.
Bill, I mean to read more of Moss.

Hereís another from the bottom of my bone pile:

Sprung Spring

The seasons having swung
a spring again has sprung,
its urgent juices wrung
from winterís thawing dung.

An orioleís nest is hung
where blossomed branches swing.
Our Debs and Dons are stung
by Cupidís loving sting.

Bluebells boldly ring
when eager lovers cling
to dance and loudly sing
thanksgiving for the spring!

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April dress'd in all his trim
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
That heavy Saturn laugh'd and leap'd with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue
Could make me any summer's story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew;
Nor did I wonder at the lily's white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seem'd it winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.
