Abstract

Where the warbling waters flow,
And the Zephyrs gently blow,
Where the warbling waters flow,
And the Zephyrs gently blow,
The Fairies dwell,
In grassy dell,
Where the forest flowers grow-
And the Zephyrs gently blow,
And a joyous home is theirs,
For it know not mortal cares.
And its only tear,
is the dew-drop clear;
That the bending lily bears,
And the only tear,
Is the dew-drop clear;
That the bending lily bears.
