'Enchanted woodland of the spring
bring magic carpet on thy wing.
Crown grass and trees in ground of blue,
turn sweet aroma into dew.
Make this new spring my first new spring,
show astonishment in everything,
where buds do not forget to bloom
and bluebells carpet every room.
Know this as being Nature's balm
restore new life to winter's calm.
Oh, let no winter last forever,
let no springtime miss its turn.'
