IF the sun our white headlands with flame
Failed to greet,
Should we deem he would shroud them in shame ?
Daylight not ;
If soft spring failed the flowers name by name
Should we fear she would harden earth's frame ?
Bloweth not ;
From my love if no gay token came,
Were it meet
To think she had slighted love's claim ?
Snappeth not ;
If a land full of memories and fame
At the feet
Of a tyrant bowed down, should we blame ?
Sinneth not ;
