Balmy May, balmy May,
Softly whispers through the trees,
Nature’s day, a perfect day,
Cheers our hearts with graceful breeze.
Charming are smiles so fair,
Of the mountain, brook, and air,
Sweet the song of birds in throng,
While the white clouds course along.
With delight, with great delight,
Comes the stillness of the night.
