The Poetical Works of Thomas Hood, by Thomas Hood

Birthday Verses.

Good morrow to the golden morning,

Good morrow to the world’s delight —

I’ve come to bless thy life’s beginning,

Since it makes my own so bright!

I have brought no roses, sweetest,

I could find no flowers, dear —

It was when all sweets were over

Thou wert born to bless the year.

But I’ve brought thee jewels, dearest,

In thy bonny locks to shine —

And if love shows in their glances,

They have learn’d that look of mine!
