Ah ? passing few they are who speak, Wild, stormy month, in praise of thee ; . Yet. though thy winds are loud and bleak, Thou art s welcome month to me. For thou to northern lands again, The glad and glorious sun dost bring. And thou hast joined the gentle train, And wear'st the gentle name of Spring. And, in thy reign of blast and storm, Smiles many a long bright sunny day, When the changed winds are soft and warm, And heaven puts on the blue of May. Then sings aloud the gushing rills And the full springs, from frost set free, That brightly leaping down the hills, Are just set out to meet the sea.
