Sister, awake! close not your eyes[edit]

  • Sister, awake! close not your eyes,
    The day her light discloses;
    And the bright morning doth arise
    Out of her bed of roses.

    See the clear sun, the world's bright eye,
    In at our window peeping;
    Lo, how he blusheth to espy
    Us idle wenches sleeping!

    Therefore awake, make haste I say,
    And let us without staying
    All in our gowns of green so gay
    Into the park a maying.
