Il8             TONE-POETRY OF ROBERT BURNS
No. 130. The smiling Spring comes in rejoicing.
Tune : Borne Bell Scots Musical Museum, 1792, No. 387.
The smiling Spring comes in rejoicing,
And surly Winter grimly flies; Now crystal clear are the falling waters,
And bonie blue are the sunny skies. Fresh o'er the mountains breaks forth the morning,
The ev'ning gilds the ocean's swell; All creatures joy in the sun's returning, And I rejoice in my bonie Bell.
The flowery Spring leads sunny Summer,
The yellow Autumn presses near; Then in his turn comes gloomy Winter,
Till smiling Spring again appear. Thus seasons dancing, life advancing,
Old Time and Nature their changes tell; But never ranging, still unchanging,
I- adore my bonie Bell.
