Buttercups and daisies, oh the pretty flowers,
Coming ere the springtime to tell of sunny hours!
While the trees are leafless while the fields are bare,
Buttercups and daisies spring up here and there.
Ere the snowdrop peepeth or the crocus bold,
Ere the early primrose opes its bud of gold
Somewhere on the sunny bank buttercups are bright,
Somewhere in the frozen grass peeps the daisy white.
