Delightful Visitant! with thee I hail the time of flowers, When heaven is fill'd with music sweet Of birds among the bowers. The school-boy wand'ring in the wood To pull the primrose gay. Starts, thy curious voice to hear, &nbsp; And imitates thy lay. Soon as the pea puts on the bloom, Thou fly'st thy vocal vale, An annual guest, in other lands Another spring to hail. Sweet bird I thy bower is ever green; &nbsp; 'Thy sky is ever clear; Thou hast no sorrow in thy song, No winter in thy year ! O could I fly, I'd fly with thee; We'd make, with social wing, Our annual visit o'er the globe, Companions of the spring.
