Crowned with blushing roses bright,
    Wreathed with tender lilies pale,
Summer wings her joyous flight
    On the balmy breathing gale:
        Wee ones bless her,
        Winds caress her,
Young birds nestle at her feet—
        Love rejoices,
        Nature voices,
Sing her praise in accents sweet.

Where the little wandering bee
    Toileth for its honied cells,
Where the fairies, half in glee,
    Weave at e’en their mystic spells;
        Summer lingers,
        With her fingers
Bathing flowers in silver dew;
        Leaf and blossom
        On her bosom
Fondly folding the night through.
