The flow'ry Vale, the shady Grove,
To my sad heart give no delight;
I think of thee, my absent Love,
And each fair Shrub becomes a Blight:
And while the greensward path I stray,
I sigh my Love is far away:

The laughing Crowd, the festive Board,
The sprightly Dance un moved I see ;
To Me such Scenes no mirth afford,
They cannot raise one Smile in me:
Ah no! to Thee my Vows I pay,
My own true Love, far far away.
