I’ve Been Wandering In The Greenwoods.

I’ve been wandering in the greenwoods,
And ‘mid flowery, smiling plains;
I’ve been listening to the dark floods,
To the thrush’s thrilling strains.

I have gathered the pale primrose,
And the purple violet sweet;
I’ve been where the asphodel grows,
And where lives the red deer fleet.

I’ve been to the distant mountain,
To the silver singing rill,
By the crystal murmuring fountain,
And the shady, verdant hill.

I’ve been where the poplar is springing
From the fair enamelled ground,
Where the nightingale is singing
With a solemn, plaintive sound.
