English.png English text

Come here, come here and dwell
In forest deep!
Come here, come here and tell
Why thou dost weep!
Is it for love (sweet pain)
That thus thou dar'st complain
Unto our summer leaves
Where nought else grieves?
Come here, come here and dwell
In forest deep.

Come here, come here and dwell
By whisp'ring stream,
Here no-one dares to die
For Love's sweet dream!
But health all seek and joy,
And shun perverse annoy,
Till close of day,
And laugh alway,
Come here, come here and dwell
By whisp'ring stream.
