See my longing eyes behold Her,
She has come and I am blessed.
Never maiden met a wooer
With a love surpassing mine.
What a winsome dainty creature
Is my sweet and charming one
See, she dresses Her fair tresses
With the golden shafts of Sun.
See how gaily She is wreathing
Green, with white and purple bloom,
Till me heart beats hard with breathing
Such a sweet and fresh perfume.
Hark, She speaks, soft winds are coming
Rich and varied music floats
Now below in brooklets humming
Then above the woodlarks notes.
She bids the buds to come right open
Fairies dance in flowered ring
Coven use the woodland glen
When my Goddess is called Spring.
