Original text and translations
Arise my Fair! and come away,
The cheerful Spring begins to-day;
Bleak Winter is gone with all his train
Of chilling frosts and dropping rain:
Amidst the verdure of the mead
The primrose lifts her velvet head,
The warbling birds the woods among
Salute the season with a song.
