The sky is blue, the valley is green;
cowslips bloom amid lily-of-the-valley.
Each day the colourful hues of the meadow increase.
If indeed you love May,
come and look with joy upon the beauty of the world,
and the kindness of God the Father that brought forth this splendour,
the tree and its blossom.
