Come Up, Come in with Streamers!

By Carl Deis and Alfred Noyes

Abstract

Come up, come in with streamers! Come in with boughs of may! Come up and thump the sexton, And carry the clerk away. Now skip like rams, ye mountains, Ye little hills like sheep! Come up and wake the people That parson puts to sleep. Come up, come in with streamers! Come in with boughs of may! Who knows but old Methuselah May hobble the greenwood way? If Betty could kiss the sexton, If Kitty could kiss the clerk, Who knows how Parson Primrose Might blossom in the dark? Come up, come in with streamers! Come in with boughs of may! Now by the gold upon your tow You walked the primrose way. Come up, with white and crimson! O, shake your bells and sing; Let the porch bend, the pillars bow, Before our Lord, the Spring
