    With A Painted Ribbon

    LITTLE leaves and flow'rets too,

    Scatter we with gentle hand,
    Kind young spring-gods to the view,

    Sporting on an airy band.

    Zephyr, bear it on the wing,

    Twine it round my loved one's dress;
    To her glass then let her spring,

    Full of eager joyousness.

    Roses round her let her see,

    She herself a youthful rose.
    Grant, dear life, one look to me!

    'Twill repay me all my woes,

    What this bosom feels, feel thou.

    Freely offer me thy hand;
    Let the band that joins us now

    Be no fragile rosy band!
