When Spring came on with fresh delight
To cheer the soul, and charm the sight
While every easy breezes, softer rain
And warmer suns salute the plain
My days have been so wondrous free,
The little birds that fly
With careless ease from tree to tree,
Were but as bless'd as I.
Still an angel appear to each lover beside,
But still be a woman to you.
A fresh green the smelling leaves display
And glittering as they tremble, cheer the day
And all that's madly wild, or oddly gay,
We call it only pretty Fanny's way.
Remote from man, with God he passed the days;
Prayer all his business, all his pleasure praise.
Let those love now who never loved before;
Let those who always loved, now love the more.
A sudden splendour seemed to kindle the day
A breeze came breathing in; a sweet perfume
Blown from eternal gardens, filled the room
Quote of the day
