Come bounteous May, in fulness of thy might,
Lead briskly on the mirth-infusing hours.
All recent from the bosom of delight,
With nectar nurtured and involved with flowers.
By Spring's sweet blush, by Nature's teeming womb;
By Hebe's dimply smile, by Flora's bloom;
By Venus' self, for Venus' self demands thee come.
