Abstract

I've wander'd in dream's home,
In fancy I've been where a though could roam;
I've blissfully gaz'd on the dewy smiles,
Of the maidens that dwell in the starry Isles;
And have waken'd from slumber pure and free,
From their airy charms to love but thee,
to love, to love to love, to love but thee!
I've dreamt about Eden's blissful bowr's,
And breath'd the sighing of heavn's own flowr's
I've heard the wild songs of the Paradise birds,
But even in sleeping the mem'ry of words
Once spoken by thee, came sweet on mine hear,
And the music around me no more would I hear.
No more no more I lov'd, I love'd but thee,
I lov'd but thee, I lov's but thee, I lov'd but thee!
lov'd but thee, I lov's but thee, I loved but thee!

Oh not more dear the honied flowr's,
Just blown at mornin to the bee;
Or to the garden summer showr's,
Than thou my love, art dear to me;
No not more dear the honied flowr's,
Just blown at morenin to the bee;
Or to the garden summer showr's,
Than thou my love, art dear to me;
Art dear to me, art dear to me,
art dear to me art dear to me,
to me, to me, to me, to me,
art dear to me.
Oh not more dear the honied flowr's,
Just blown at mornin to the bee;
Or to the garden summer showr's,
Than thou my love, art dear to me'
than thoug, my garden summer show'rs,
Than thou, my love art dear to me,
than thou, my love art dear to me,
than thou, my love art dear to me,
than though, my love art dear to me,
art dear to me,
dear art dear to me
