of merriment, and mirth, and bonfire blaze;

Of April, May, of June, and July-flowers;
I tell of Christmas-mummings, new year's day, I tell of May-poles, hock-carts, wassails,, wakes,
of twelfth-night king and queen, and children's play; of bridegroomis, brides, and of their bridal cakes;
I tell of Valentine's, and truelove's knots,

I tell of groves, of twilights, and I sing
of omens, cunning-men, and drawing lots
