Airs of Summer, softly blow;
Sing your whispering songs to me,
Over the grass like shadows go,
Flutter your wings in the rustling tree;
Curl the wave on sunlit sand,
Rock the bee in its rose asleep,
Scatter odours from strand to strand,
Over oceans in laughter sweep.
Kiss the snow on the mountain’s height,
Woo the river that glides beneath,
Sing in the trees your sweet goodnight,
And cease like a baby’s slumbering breath.
