Original text and translations

When spring begems the dewy scene,
How sweet to walk the velvet green,
And hear the zephyr's languid sighs,
As o'er the scented mead he flies.
How sweet to mark the pouting vine,
Ready to fall in tears of wine.
When the embowering branches meet,
Oh, is not this divinely sweet.
