Words:

THE
COMPLIMENTS
OF THE
SEASON

I STOOD WITH DELIGHT IN THE
SNOW COVER'D LANE,

AND WHISPER'D, SEE, SEE,
ROBIN COMES,

WHILE I FONDLY ENTICED HIM
AGAIN AND AGAIN,

WITH THE HANDFUL OF
SAVOURY CRUMBS.

HOW I WISH I COULD WELCOME
THE SPRING BONNIE BIRD,

WITH A CAROL AS JOYOUS
AS THINE:

WOULD MY HEART WERE AS LIGHT
AS THY WING BONNIE BIRD,

AND THY BEAUTIFUL
SPIRIT-SONG MINE.
