The Spring has sprung!

This one is just to cheer us up and God knows we need cheering with so much bad news to drag us down. Spring comes round regardless of what we foolish human beings are doing.

So let’s sing along with Thomas Morley, even if – like me – we are a very long way from being ‘merry lads’ or ‘bonny lasses’

Now is the month of maying,
When merry lads are playing,
Fa la la la la la la la la,
Fa la la la la la la lah.
Each with his bonny lass
Upon the greeny grass.
Fa la la la la la la la la, etc…

The Spring, clad all in gladness,
Doth laugh at Winter’s sadness,
Fa la la, etc…
And to the bagpipe’s sound
The nymphs tread out their ground.
Fa la la, etc…

Fie then! why sit we musing,
Youth’s sweet delight refusing?
Fa la la, etc…
Say, dainty nymphs, and speak,
Shall we play barley break?
Fa la la etc…

Thomas Morley

Or to put it another way…

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz
I wonder where the boidies is
They say the boid is on the wing
But that’s absoid, the wing is on the boid!
