Poetry Pleases: Springtime

John Ayling's poem hails the most welcomed of all the seasons.

Now comes the spring: the rising sun
Awakes to life the sleeping earth
The blackbird sings on budding bough,
And far away the cuckoo calls.
In gay profusion flowers bloom
The primrose, cowslips, violets
And like the purple misty seas
The bluebells sway beneath the trees.
The babbling brook in sunshine clad
Spreads golden ripples as it flows
To sing its song among the stones.
Play little children hand in hand
And gambol in green fields the lambs.
