Three Songs from ‘Maud’, I
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
GO not, happy day
  From the shining fields,
Go not, happy day,
  Till the maiden yields.
Rosy is the West,        5
  Rosy is the South,
Roses are her cheeks,
  And a rose her mouth.
When the happy Yes
  Falters from her lips,        10
Pass and blush the news
  O’er the blowing ships.
Over blowing seas,
  Over seas at rest,
Pass the happy news,        15
  Blush it thro’ the West;
Till the red man dance
  By his red cedar tree,
And the red man’s babe
  Leap, beyond the sea.        20
Blush from West to East,
  Blush from East to West,
Till the West is East,
  Blush it thro’ the West.
Rosy is the West,        25
  Rosy is the South,
Roses are her cheeks,
  And a rose her mouth.
