Abstract

I know a back whereon the wild thyme blows,
Where cowslips and the nodding violet grows,
I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,... the wild thyme blows,
I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
Where cowslips and the nodding violet grows.
There sleeps the fairy Queen,....
There sleeps the fairy Queen.
I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
And the nodding, nodding violet grows.
There sleeps the fairy Queen,
There sleeps sometimes of the night,
Lulled in their flowers with dances and delight
with dances and delight.
