'Tis the merry nightingale
That crowds, and hurries, and precipitates
With fast thick warble his delicious notes,

His love-chant, and disburthen his full soul
Of all its music!

When every goose is cackling, would be thought
No better a musician than the wren.

To their right praise and true perfection!

Sweet bird, that sing'st away the early hours,
Of winter's past or coming void of care,
Well pleased with delights which present are,
Fair seasons, budding sprays, sweet-smelling flowers.

O nightingale, that on yon bloomy spray
Warblest at eve, when all the woods are still;
Thou with fresh hope the lover's heart dost fill
While the jolly hours lead on propitious May.

Sweet bird that shunn'st the nose of folly,
Most musical, most melancholy!
Thee, chauntress, oft, the woods among,
I woo, to hear thy even-song.

Thy liquid notes that close the eye of day
First heard before the shallow cuckoo's bill,
Portend success in love.
