ON A YOUNG GENTLEMAN's RETURN FROM JAMAICA

1 Ye winds, ye waves, ye stormy seas,
2 To whom such force is giv'n,
3 Ah! gently, gently, waft on shore
4 The noblest work of Heav'n.
5 He comes! the lovely youthful bard,
6 To grace his native isle,
7 To bless a mother's longing eyes,
8 To make his Delia smile.
9 Come then, ye maids, a garland weave
10 To crown his beauteous brow;
11 To Delia we'll the garland give,
12 To her he gave his vow.
