Is this the gentle spring Of which the poets sing, Or Is It but the IICMII or winter's tattered robe? And must wo wait awhile For April's sunny smile, And for the fresh mosquito's aggravating 1 probe? Wo doubt the pleasant days, Tho sun's enticing rays, Even the bluollyo's loud and most familiar buzz, Because wo sadly know That these things can't be so, And the times aro not a bit like what they used to was. Old fellows who look back Along the lengthened track, May toll us fairy tales or springs they used to know. Those tales, If they aro true, Help neither mo nor you, Who only sou our springs of sluot and slush and snow. Therefore wo doubt the spring, And fondly do wo ollng To worn but warm and heavy winter overcoats, And some of us declare That they cnn hardly dare To trust the starling o( the Coney Island boats. Let winter have his reign. With sharp rheumatic pain. And all discomforts that the frozen months may bring; Jlut let him go his way When ha has had his day, And give us once again a good old-fashioned spring.
