Song by C. Heywood.

Ye merry birds that gayly sing,
Making the woods and'groves to ring-
For wines have ye to fly away
O'er land and sea And waters gray;
And voices sweet to all belong
That ye may breathe your souls in song.

Ye pretty birdlings, light and freeĀ­"Ye pretty birdlings, light and free.
Will one, will one of you,
A message, a message- bear for me?

Down in a vale where cooling springs
Fill the soft air with murmurings.
Where blooming flow'rets, wild and sweet.
The evening zephyrs gladly greet;
There stands my own love s cottage dear,
There Spring-time blossoms all the year.-Chorus

Oh, could I fly to her with you
And tell her of my love so true,
And how my sighs are poured in vain.
That in her smiles I'd live again;
Against my heart I'd clasp her fast,
And in a kiss forget the past-Chorus.
