Spring, The Sweet Spring

Rating: 2.7
Spring, the sweet spring, is the year's pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

The palm and may make country houses gay,
Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,
And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!
The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,

Unbelievably bad. A child of eight could do better. All that is famous is not neccessarily quality. We must never be afraid to be critical, or we will never learn,

I like this daft poem. It has the spring of Spring in it! We know only a shadow of the joy with which people greeted spring in those days. If the poem is recited the sound of the different birds should be imitated. As for rhyme - it looks good to me. I would have thought the modern ear would have been used to half-rhymes - popular song is full of them. Anyway “fit”, “seat” and “greet” probably rhymed then.

Did anyone notice that poor Thomas wrote 3 versions of this poem and died at 34 years of age? Over 400 years ago, possibly from In Time of Pestilence, which is a superior poem to this. Seems was not a time of joy blooming. I hope Poor Thomas had his chance then when 'maids dance in a ring' because country life then seems far from rosy.
