Yellow Bells

This spring song is inspired by Stephen Foster’s “Hard Times Come Again No More” (1854).
Yellow Bells

The rarest wildflower in these woods…

A pale drooping maiden 
Just outside my cabin door
Her frail form
Spring once more.

Though her voice is quiet
Her pleading look does say
Oh’ spring come 
Winter pass away.

Her sighs the hope for the weary
Spring come-- 
Spring come--
Come without delay.

Though her bloom is fragrant
The winds blew fierce and gay
Oh, spring come
	Come without delay.

Moments after this song was sung, the little donkey came to visit the
woodland meadow, and
Its hoof fell upon the yellow bell
And so, no song 
could the slender maiden
 longer tell.
