Original text and translations
Sweet is the breath of early morn,
That o'er yon heath refreshing blows
And sweet the blossom on the thorn,
The violet blue, the blushing rose.
When mounts the lark on rapid wing,
How sweet to sit and hear him sing,
No music like the feathered choir,
Such happy, grateful thoughts inspire.
But hark! the lark, his merry strain,
To heaven high soaring sings again.
Be hushed, sweet songster, ev'ry voice,
That warbles not like thee, rejoice.
