The Spring.

See how the wanton Spring
In green is clad,
Heark how the birds do sing,
l'le not be sad:
Doth not the blushing Rose
Breath sweet perfume?
I will my spice disclose,
But not presume:
The dew falls on the grass,
And hastes away,
Which makes me mind my glass
Which will not stay:
Now plants and herbs do grow
In every place,
Lord, let not me be slow
In growth of Grace:
Behold the fruitful trees
And fertil ground;
Observe the painful Bees,
Whose hives abound;
I will not barren be,
Nor waste my dayes
Like slaggards, that are free
From vertuous wayes.
