THE BRIDE NAMED SPRING

(An Elizabethan Ballad)

By Josie Whitehead

Bride Named Spring

When cold winds blow across Earth’s face

And drenching rain pours with disgrace,

     The frosted snow on hills doth make

     The icing on your wedding cake.

 

          Oh bride named Spring

          Arise, away –

          Tomorrow is your wedding day.

 

Listen how the bells are ringing!

The whole new life of Nature’s singing.

     See features in the world’s new face –

     A fresh demeanour, sweetness, grace.

 

          Oh bride named Spring

          Arise, away –

          Tomorrow is your wedding day.

 

The sunshine, winter’s wind is chiding,

To claim new life that still is hiding,     

     So welcome forth the wedding guests:

     Flowers, plants - chicks in their nests.

 

          Oh bride named Spring

          Do not delay -

          Come, join us on your special day.
