O rapturous bird with the low sweet note!
    O bird that sits on the spray!
Sing on, sing on, from your soft brown throat!
        And my love in her little bed
        Will listen, and lift her head
    From the pillow, and come my way!
O rapturous bird with the low sweet note!
    O bird that sits on the spray!
