The year’s at the spring. And [the] day’s at the morn; Morning’s at seven; The hill-side’s dew[y] pearl’d; The lark’s on the wing; The snail’s on the thorn; God’s in His heav’n— All’s right with the world!
Robert Browning (1812-1889)
This song is Mrs H H A Beach’s exuberant welcome to the twentieth century. The Year’s at the Spring (Pippa’s song in Pippa Passes), is the first in a set of three Robert Browning songs published in 1900. Words and music are full of incredible optimism: ‘All’s right with the world!’ Two World Wars in the ensuing decades notwithstanding, that same message of hope and enthusiasm would serve us well as we head into the new millennium.
