A SONG

1 The morning smiles with soft delight,
2 The streams do smoothly glide;
3 'Tis not the sun that shines so bright,
4 'Tis Nan of Leader side.
5 Her sprightly notes the lark does make
6 Among the branches hide:
7 And all the drowsy songsters wake
8 With Nan of Leader side.
9 O why that look of cold disdain?
10 Yet wherefore do I chide;
11 For sure there's pleasure in the pain,
12 Sweet Nan of Leader side.
13 No wonder then her bosom swells
14 With heart-exulting pride;
15 For, hark! on Eden banks the bells
16 Play Nan of Leader side.
