1  The summer gale, that gently blows,
Joys not to meet the balmy rose,
As I delight in thee, love!
The rosebud opening to the view,
Loves not to bathe in morning dew,
As I delight in thee.
O, thou art all to me, love!
All my heart holds dearly;
Never loved a village swain
So truly, so sincerely!

2  The bee exults not in the sweets,
Enriching ev'ry flower she meets,
As I delight in thee, love!
The lark rejoices not to rise,
At early morn, in cloudless skies,
As I delight in thee.
O, thou art all to me, love!
All my heart holds dearly;
Never loved a village swain
So truly, so sincerely!
