Gay Marigold is Frolic
By Robert Bridges (1844–1930)
 
From Later Poems No. 2.

GAY Marigold is frolic,
  She laughs till summer is done;
She hears the Grillie chirping
  All day i’ the blazing sun.
 
But when the pale moon rises,        5
  She fain her face would hide;
For the high Queen of sorrows
  Disdains her empty pride.
 
Fair Primrose haunts the shadow
  With children of the Spring,        10
Till in the bloomy woodland
  The nightingale will sing.
 
And when he lauds the May-night
  And spirits throng the grove,
The moon shines thro’ the branches        15
  And floods her heart with love.
