Gurgling spring in sylvan beauty
Almost hid away from view;
From your own bright sparkling water
I will drink a health to you.

Beach and oak tree reaching skyward
Guard you from the sunlight's heat;
And from this overhanging stone
Comes a breath of flowers sweet.

In your water clear and cold
Warbling birds their plumage lave;
From your brink o'ergrown with mosses
Dainty fern fronds gently wave.

Huntmen here have often lingered
Drinking of your water clear;
And you've often quenched the thirst
Of the agile, antlered deer.

So here's a health dear sparkling spring
Gurgling from the mountain's side,
With a wish that in your beauty
You will ever here abide.
