The Gardener wi’ his paidle——or, The Gardener’s March

WHEN rosy May comes in wi' flowers
To deck her gay, green, spreading bowers;
Then busy, busy are his hours,
The Gardener wi' his paidle.---

The chrystal waters gently fa';
The merry birds are lovers a';
The scented breezes round him blaw,
The Gardener wi' his paidle.---

When purple morning starts the hare
To steal upon her early fare;
Then thro' the dew he maun repair,
The Gardener wi' his paidle.---

When Day, expiring in the west,
The curtain draws of Nature's rest;
He flies to her arms he lo'er best,
The Gardener wi' his paidle.---
