The Spring Of The Year

GONE were but the winter cold,
   And gone were but the snow,
I could sleep in the wild woods
   Where primroses blow.

Cold 's the snow at my head,
   And cold at my feet;
And the finger of death 's at my e'en,
   Closing them to sleep.

Let none tell my father
   Or my mother so dear,--
I'll meet them both in heaven
   At the spring of the year.
