It Was A Lover And His Lass – William Shakespeare: This poem is written by William Shakespeare, an English poet regarded as the greatest writer in the English

William ShakespeareIT was a lover and his lass, 
   With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino
That o’er the green corn-field did pass, 
   In the spring time, the only pretty ring time, 
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding; 
Sweet lovers love the spring. 

Between the acres of the rye, 
   With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino
These pretty country folks would lie, 
   In the spring time, the only pretty ring time, 
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding; 
Sweet lovers love the spring. 

This carol they began that hour, 
   With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino
How that life was but a flower 
   In the spring time, the only pretty ring time, 
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding; 
Sweet lovers love the spring. 

And, therefore, take the present time 
   With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino
For love is crown`d with the prime 
In the spring time, the only pretty ring time, 
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding; 
Sweet lovers love the spring.
