William Blake (1757–1827).  The Poetical Works.  1908.
 
Songs of Innocence
Spring
 
      SOUND the flute!
      Now it’s mute.
      Birds delight
      Day and night;
      Nightingale        5
      In the dale,
      Lark in sky,
      Merrily,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.
 
      Little boy,        10
      Full of joy;
      Little girl,
      Sweet and small;
      Cock does crow,
      So do you;        15
      Merry voice,
      Infant noise,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.
 
      Little lamb,
      Here I am;        20
      Come and lick
      My white neck;
      Let me pull
      Your soft wool;
      Let me kiss        25
      Your soft face:
Merrily, merrily, we welcome in the year.
