Cuckoo! cuckoo! How lad and maiden Love ambuscadin*
In search of you !
But far and near Ventriloquising, With art surprising
You mock the ear; Till, airy elf, 'Tis Echo's self
They call you.
Cuckoo! cuckoo!
At dawn upspringing, We hear you ringing Your joy-bell true; The live-long day Its magic measure Peals perfect pleasure, Then dies away,
In far off whispers Thro' our vespers Stealing.
