“Where the Wattles Are Blooming (Holiday Song)”


"Sunshine is over the meadow, Sunshine is over the hill..." "Come with me, merry and free, Gay as a bird on the spray, Grief and care, come if you dare, We will be happy today." "Come where the wattles are blooming, Down in the flowery glade"


Meredith/Covell/Brown compares this to the William Blake poem "The Echoing Green." - RBW
