HUSH! Hush! those lips unclos'd, I hear
Irene's song salute mine ear.
Hush! Hush! now, listening all to her,
Let neither branch nor flow'ret stir.

Ye sparrows! on the elm tree bough,
Be still, ye restless chirpers, now;
Be silent every shepherd's flute;
Silvanus! listen and be mute.

See! Brenta smooths his ruffled tide,
See! calmly now the waters glide,
See! opening flowers bedeck the ground,
See! greener turf springs up around.

No idle tales were they which told
How music tam'd the brutes of old,
No lying fables were they, those
Which told how Theban walls arose.
