The soaring skylark's warble fills the air
That breathes beneath an all but cloudless sky;
The summer's sultry warmth we all may share,
Which transient heat will cold be by and by -
Earth, happy, teems with beauty and with life,
The radiant sun fears not to flame his fires,
Her gushing rills and bubbling brooks are rife
With all the joyful sounds of nature's choirs!
Let us join in this seasonable joy -
Let us join in the heartfelt soaring song -
Of nature's music may we never cloy -
That nature to which all of us belong!
