On May Morning
a poem by John Milton 

On May Morning
 by John Milton 

Now the bright morning Star, Day's harbinger, 
Comes dancing from the East, and leads with her 
The Flowery May, who from her green lap throws 
The yellow Cowslip, and the pale Primrose. 
Hail bounteous May that dost inspire 
Mirth and youth, and warm desire, 
Woods and Groves, are of thy dressing, 
Hill and Dale, doth boast thy blessing. 
Thus we salute thee with our early Song, 
And welcome thee, and wish thee long.
