LXIX
WHEN THE BRIGHT GOD OF DAY
In a jessamine bower,
(When the bean was in flower And zephyrs breathed odours around)
Lov'd Celia she sat,
With her song and spinet, And she charmed all the grove with her sound.
Rosy Bowers she sung,
While the harmony rung, And the bees they all fluttering arrive ;
The industrious bees,
From the flowers and the trees, Gently hum with their sweets to their hive.
The gay God of Love
As he flew o'er the grove, By zephyrs conducted along,
As she touched on the strings
He beat time with his wings, While Echo repeated the song.
