Black Book, John Burgess P26-27

Spring comes but Once

When I was a young lad-
And that is long ago-
I thought that luck loved every man,
And time his only foe;
And love was like a hawthornbush
That blossomed in the May,
And one had but to chose his flower
For thats the young lads way!

Oh youth's a thriftless squanderer;
Its easy come and spent;
And heavy is the going now
Where once the light feet went.
The Hawthornbush puts on its white
The throstle whistles clear,
But spring comes once for every man
Just once in all the year.

John Burgess Aged 72 March 22 1913
