'Twere bliss to see one lark
Soar to the azure dark
Singing upon his high celestial road.
I have seen many hundreds soar, thank God!

To see one Spring begin
In her first heavenly green,
Were grace unmeet for any mortal clod.
I have seen many Springs begin, thank God!

After the lark the swallow,
Blackbirds in hill and hollow,
Thrushes and nightingales all roads I trod,
As though one bird were not enough, thank God!

Not one flower, but a rout,
All exquisite, are out:
All white and golden every stretch of sod,
As though one flower were not enough, thank God!
