In a joyous 6/8 time signature, this is the perfect piece to play when the flowers bud at the first signs of spring. The left hand never stays in the same hand position for long. It is marked legato, but this is difficult to achieve during passages of moving fifths. Focusing on making the melody as smooth and legato as possible will keep the mood sweeter. Careful counting is necessary to help the piece flow.
