AS the mother-bird to the waiting nest
As the regnant moon to the sea,
As joy to the heart that hath first been blest—
So is my love to me!

Sweet as the song of the lark that soars
From the net of the fowler free,
Sweet as the morning that song adores—
So is my love to me!

As the rose that blossoms in matchless grace
Where the canker may not be,
As the well that springs in a desert place—
So is my love to me!
