Swell the song in strains sublime,
Let majestic numbers flow;
Verse and harmony combine
To hail celestial charms below.
Warbling birds, now tune your lays,
Echo join in Delia's praise;
All assist me to declare
The charms of lovely Delia fair.

Lovely as the rising morn,
In the vernal season gay,
Nobler graces will adorn
When youth and beauty shall decay.
Smiles of innocence and love,
Words that angels might approve,
Comely dress and pleasing air;
All charms unite in Delia fair.
