Fare Thee Well, Winter... bringer of cold
Welcome Springtime, with colours so bold...
Take thy harsh breath, hide far away...
Let our poor toes defrost, no more shivers I say!
Let us fold up our doonas, our scarves and our socks
No heavy coats, just light summer frocks..
No fires on hearth, no mists on the fields
Just sighs of delight, with fruit's summer yields..
Till the heat is oppressive, and we are soaked through
Then maybe, just maybe, we'll think of you!
