Second Song - To the Same
by Alfred Tennyson

                          I
Thy tuwhits are lull'd, I wot,
    Thy tuwhoos of yesternight,
Which upon the dark afloat,
    So took echo with delight,
    So took echo with delight,
        That her voice untuneful grown,
        Wears all day a fainter tone.

                         II
I would mock thy chant anew;
    But I cannot mimic it;
Not a whit of thy tuwhoo,
    Thee to woo to thy tuwhit,
    Thee to woo to thy tuwhit,
        With a lengthen'd loud halloo,
        Tuwhoo, tuwhit, tuwhit, tuwhoo-o-o.
