Description of Spring – Wherein each thing renews, save only the Lover by Henry Howard – Earl of Surrey

Home / Henry Howard - Earl of Surrey / Description of Spring – Wherein each thing renews, save only the Lover by Henry Howard – Earl of Surrey

The soote season, that bud and bloom forth brings,
With green hath clad the hill and eke the vale:
The nightingale with feathers new she sings;
The turtle to her make hath told her tale.
Summer is come, for every spray now springs:
The hart hath hung his old head on the pale;
The buck in brake his winter coat he flings;
The fishes flete with new repaired scale.
The adder all her slough away she slings;
The swift swallow pursueth the flies smale;
The busy bee her honey now she mings;
Winter is worn that was the flowers’ bale.

And thus I see among these pleasant things
Each care decays, and yet my sorrow springs.
