First Line: Ye rapid troops and light

Alternate Author Name(s): Du Bellay, Joachim

YE rapid troops and light,
Who your far-wandering flight
O'er every region take,
And, murmuring shrill and low,
Through shady verdures go,
And sway and gently shake.

I offer flowerets,
Lilies and violets,
And roses fair to you.
Roses all nature's pride,
New blown and open wide,
And bright carnations too.

With your soft, cooling breath,
Blow over plain and heath,
Blow hither fresh and fleet,
The while I toil and strain,
To fan the wheaten grain
Beneath the midday heat.
