That’s What It Is To Be Young -Various Artists

Fresh as an April morning,
Soft as a tulip’s tongue,
Clear as the gleam of a mountain stream;
That’s what it is to be young.

Warm as a summer sunrise,
Sweet as an evening breeze,
Pure as a note from a songbird’s throat,
Rich as the green of the trees,

Strong as the bite of a frosty night,
Bold as a big brass band,
Keen as a bean or a young sardine —
Not very keen to be canned,

Bright as a newborn bluebell,
New as a song unsung,
Free as the breeze on the seven seas;
That’s what it is to be young.
