WHEN zephyrs blow and softly bring
A subtle scent of new-born spring;
O, then, old vagrant dreams arise
Of other lands and other skies
Where once I went a-wandering.
Ay, me! how recollections cling!
The days gone by have left their sting.
But love detains me with his sighs
And holds me as his captive prize:
No more I'll go a-wandering
When zephyrs blow.
