Already the year is getting on

And we are settling into routine

Let us praise the day and greet the dawn

 

The spring is the breast that nurses the fawn

(She has no desire ever to wean)

Already the year is getting on

 

The salmon swim their course to lay their spawn

The snow is melting upon the green

Let us praise the day and greet the dawn

 

The rays of the sun elicit a yawn

I awake to the song of my sullen queen

Already the year is getting on

 

A mid-morning mist of dew graces the lawn

The pink suckling pigs are growing lean

Let us praise the day and greet the dawn

 

I awake in the night to find you gone

(The seasons are few and far between)

Already the year is getting on

Let us praise the day and greet the dawn
