Wouldst thou learn what coldness is,
 Seek it not where Hebrus flows,
Shuddering, to the abyss;
 Nor where Hermon's gleaming snows,
 On its frozen heights, repose;
But on such a morn as this,
 When no blade of grass is dumb,
When the birds, low-twittering, build,
And Earth's heart is passion-thrill'd,—
 Come to Love's deserted home!
