Sketching under a whispering oak,
I heard five bobolinks laughing together,
Over some ornithological joke.

By our fond Summer sympathies ensnared,
Nor from the perfect circle read more

Nor from the perfect circle of the year
Can even Winter's crystal gems be spared.

Dirtier than the ground below,
Dribbles down a marshy flood;

In the meadows while you sing,
"This is Spring."

With music in the air that dulls the craft
Of rhetoric. So when Shakespeare sang or laughed
The world with long, sweet Alpine echoes thrilled
Voiceless to scholars' tongues no muse had filled
With melody divine.
