Come gently winter, come softly,
The good creatures love your sound.
Come quietly winter, come sweetly,
leaving snow upon the ground.
Come sweetly spring, come swiftly,
The caring creatures love your smell.
Come quickly spring, come nicely,
From your trees the blossoms fell.
Come warmly summer, come grandly!
The fair creatures love your sight.
Come calmly summer, come greatly,
filling the blue sky up with your light.
Come stately fall, come slowly,
the nice creatures love your face.
Come smoothly fall, come safely...
Coming and going with grace...
