Poetical Sketches
Song: Love and harmony combine
LOVE and harmony combine,
And around our souls entwine
While thy branches mix with mine,
And our roots together join.
Joys upon our branches sit,        5
Chirping loud and singing sweet;
Like gentle streams beneath our feet
Innocence and virtue meet.
Thou the golden fruit dost bear,
I am clad in flowers fair;        10
Thy sweet boughs perfume the air,
And the turtle buildeth there.
There she sits and feeds her young’
Sweet I hear her mournful song;
And thy lovely leaves among,        15
There is love, I hear his tongue.
There his 1 charming nest doth lay,
There he sleeps the night away;
There he sports along the day,
And doth among our branches play.        20
Note 1. his] her; an obvious misprint, in the original. [back]
