Happy Spring! Watch “When Daffodils Begin to ‘pear.”

Happy First Day of Spring Everyone!

Today is (technically) the first day of Spring! I thought I’d give you a little lighthearted music inspired by Shakespeare to celebrate the turning of the seasons! The text comes from The Winter’s Tale:

When daffodils begin to peer, 
With heigh! The doxy over the dale, 
Why, then comes in the sweet o' the year; 
For the red blood reigns in the winter's pale. 
The white sheet bleaching on the hedge, 
With heigh! the sweet birds, O, how they sing! 
Doth set my pugging tooth on edge; 
For a quart of ale is a dish for a king.
