Abstract

The sun is sinking dearest
Upon the blue hill's breast;
The wand'ring breeze thou hearest
Enquire for place of rest-
The list'ning trees above thee,
Whose brows are wreathed in green
Shall hear me say I love thee
My own bright Forest Queen.
The list'ning trees above thee
Whose brows are wreathed in green
Shall hear me say I love thee
My own bright Forest Queen.


Away to the laughing wild wood
For far in its deep green shade
The joyous hopes of childhood
Will never never fade.
Away form haunts of folly
Cold hearts and anguish keen;
Away from melancholy
We'll fly my Forest Queen.
Away form haunts of folly
Cold hearts and anguish keen;
Away from melancholy
We'll fly my Forest Queen.

We'll live and love together
We'll brave the cold world's scorn,
Nor heed life's stormy weather,
But brisk as the early morn
We'll roam the wilds contented
Nor seek for change of scene;
Our path with hope is scented
My own bright Forest Queen
We'll roam &c.
