105 Handwriting - "A Song of Spring"

 

Beneath my feet are primroses

a lark sings loud on high

and o'erhead a slender larch

springs, clear, against the sky;

from yonder field the soft breeze brings

a scent I know of old,

where cowslips bursting into bloom,

bow down their cups of gold.

 

The meadows area are a dainty green,

the hedges all a-bud,

across the clear blue sky the clouds

like filmy feathers scud;

up there the wind is fresh and free,

but here stays to dream,

to dally with the primrose stalks

and linger o'er the stream.

 

'Twas but a year ago I stood

and viewed this very spot

and pondered on dear Nature's scene

and blessed my happy lot!
