The insect-youth are on the wing,
Eager to taste the honied spring,
And float amid the liquid noon!
From Helicon's harmonious springs
A thousand rills their mazy progress take.
T'was Spring, t'was Summer, all was gay
Now Autumn bears a cloud brow
The flowers of Spring are swept way
And Summer fruits desert the bough
Yet hark, how through the peopled air The busy murmur glows! The insect-youth are on the wing, Eager to taste the honied spring And float amid the liquid noon: Some lightly o'er the current skim, Some show their gayly-gilded trim Quick-glancing to the sun.
The Attic warbler pours her throat,
Responsive to the cuckoo's note,
The untaught harmony of spring.
