The Sun arise,
And make happy the skies.
The merry bells ring
To welcome the Spring.
The sky-lark and thrush,
The birds of the bush,
Sing louder around,
To the bells' cheerful sound.
While our sports shall be seen
On the Ecchoing Green.
Till the little ones weary
No more can be merry.
The sun does descend,
And our sports have a end...

  10. I disagree with Ms. Sue on #2. I think your first answer, b, is the best choice. The last mowing of the hay yields little (but is worth it). The aftermath is gathered in (what's left of the summer crop) and we're ready for winter.
