The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
334. Song—Fragment—Damon and Sylvia
 
 
Tune—“The Tither Morn.”
 
 
YON wandering rill that marks the hill,
  And glances o’er the brae, Sir,
Slides by a bower, where mony a flower
  Sheds fragrance on the day, Sir;
There Damon lay, with Sylvia gay,        5
  To love they thought no crime, Sir,
The wild birds sang, the echoes rang,
  While Damon’s heart beat time, Sir.
