Truly Spring
daffodils on April 20, 2009

There's a song I leaned in elementary school from a book that was probably published in the 19th century that goes like this:

When the first wild bee is humming on the lea
That's proof that the Spring is here,
But the bee might go back home again to sleep.
Don't fly too far; you know how Aprils are,
But when tops all hum from the string,
Then you know it's truly Spring.

I figured I'd ask if there's anybody else out there who learned the song and if they might know the other verses. It had several, but I only memorized the first. Here's a tiny MP3 of me singing the tune: Truly Spring

I figured that since April is almost over, it was high time I stopped procrastinating.

New Friend!

I saw you over on conlangs and dropped by here to browse. I've added you to my Friends list.

Thanks for sharing your flower photo! My daffodils are almost done blooming, lilacs and violets coming out now.
