Song in the Wood

(Detail of In the Tauern Mountains, woodcut by Josef
Stoitzner, 1884-1951, Austrian artist)

“Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy, ‘Do you hear what I hear?’” ~ Noël Regney and Gloria Shayne Baker, from Do You Hear What I Hear?


This way, this way, come and hear,
You that hold these pleasures dear;
Fill your ears with our sweet sound,
Whilst we melt the frozen ground.
This way come; make haste, O fair!
Let your clear eyes gild the air;
Come, and bless us with your sight;
This way, this way, seek delight.

~ John Fletcher (1579-1625), English playwright, from The Little French Lawyer, a comedy
