"A Jewel Song"

Hey! for turquoise sky and sea,
      Emerald grass and leafy tree
Topaz sunlight, onyx shade,—
      Ho! for Spring, the joyous maid.

Hey! for sapphire ocean blue,
      Opal sky and moonstone dew,
Agate night and amber day,—
      Ho! for Summer bright and gay.

Hey! for garnet bough and vine,
      Amethyst grape and ruby wine,
Golden setting for them all,—
      Ho! for brilliant, sad-heart Fall.

Hey! for silver glistening frost,
      Pearls of snow past any cost,
Diamond ice and crystal air,—
      Ho! for Winter cold and fair.
