Gone were but the Winter,
Come were but the Spring,
I would go to a covert
Where the birds sing;
 
Where in the whitethorn
Singeth a thrush,
And a robin sings
In the holly—bush.
 
Full of fresh scents
Are the budding boughs
Arching high over
A cool green house:
 
Full of sweet scents,
And whispering air
Which sayeth softly:
“We spread no snare;
 
”Here dwell in safety,
Here dwell alone,
With a clear stream
And a mossy stone.
 
“Here the sun shineth
Most shadily;
Here is heard an echo
Of the far sea,
Though far off it be.”
