Chorus of the Fairies by William Allingham









Chorus of the Fairies

by William Allingham


Golden, golden,

Light unfolding,

Busily, merrily, work and play,

In flowery meadows,

And forest shadows,

All the length of a Summer day!

All the length of a Summer day!

Sprightly, lightly,

Sing we rightly,

Moments brightly hurry away;

Fruit-tree blossoms,

And roses' bosoms,—

Clear blue sky of a Summer day!

Dear blue sky of a Summer day!

Springlets, brooklets,

Greeny nooklets,

Hill and Valley, and salt sea-spray,

Comrade rovers,

Fairy lovers,—

All the length of a Summer day

All the livelong Summer day!
