Sweet minstrel of the scented spring,
Ten thousand silver bells
To welcome thee, are all a-swing,
Upon the dewy fells;
To sing with thee, I should be fain,
Oh, harper blithe and free!
But love has bound me with a chain,
That wrings the heart of me.

Oh, hasten to my love, and tell
Her how she makes me pine;
And ask her if she thinks it well
To slight a heart like mine;
For, if my suit her scorn doth move,
It shall no longer be;
Although I know she's made for love,
And I wish that she loved me.
