THE nightingale's sighing
Mid elder leaves,
Coquetting and toying
With soft spring breeze.
He flew to the rose,
His love to prove:
To me ope thy chalice,
My loyal love.

Beside garden hedge stood
Two children fair;
They talked of a parting
To meet elsewhere.
Weep not, little maiden,
I'll fears disprove;
On earth thou'lt be ever
My loyal love!

Up rises the lily
From azure lake,
With yearning ascending
The moon to seek.
With silvery pencil
He writes above:
"For me live thou and die,
My loyal love!"

Long, long, stood I pond'ring,
Silent, alone;
A rustling from fragrant
Woodlands was blown.
Yet though louder growing,
No thief did move.
His arms close, close hold me,
My loyal love!
