Behold, my love, how green the groves, 
The primrose banks how fair; 
The balmy gales awake the flowers, 
And wave thy flowing hair. 

The lav'rock shuns the palace gay, 
And o'er the cottage sings: 
For Nature smiles as sweet, I ween, 
To Shepherds as to Kings. 

Let minstrels sweep the skilfu' string, 
In lordly lighted ha': 
The Shepherd stops his simple reed, 
Blythe in the birken shaw. 

The Princely revel may survey 
Our rustic dance wi' scorn; 
But are their hearts as light as ours, 
Beneath the milk-white thorn! 

The shepherd, in the flowery glen; 
In shepherd's phrase, will woo: 
The courtier tells a finer tale, 
But is his heart as true! 

These wild-wood flowers I've pu'd, to deck 
That spotless breast o' thine: 
The courtiers' gems may witness love, 
But, 'tis na love like mine.
