Original text and translations
Ah! gentle zephyr, ah! if e'er
Thou find the mistress of my heart,
Tell her thou art a sigh sincere,
But never say whose sigh thou art!
Ah! limpid rivulet, if e'er
Thy murmuring waters near her glide,
Tell her thou art swell'd by many a tear,
But not whose eyes those tears supplied.
