1  I sat beneath the Abeles old,
The meads were shot with green and gold,
And underneath my feet there rolled
The little silvery Gad:
The cuckoo and the thrush were singing,
The sheep bells on the hills were ringing,
All life was gay and glad!

Template:Vs!2 The busy babbling waterfall
Melodiously kept time to all,
The rich May music mystical,
Toned to the freshening air;
Each ripening bud that open flies,
Seemed gasping with a gay surprise,
To greet the world so fair!

3  O lovely, lovely, lovely Spring!
O robed in sunbeams! bridegroom, king!
Breathe on my heart and bid me sing,
Or rather praise and pray;
For emblems are these sunny, hours,
These golden meads, and stream, and flowers,
Of everlasting May!
