Wave that wand'rest singing by
Wave that wand'rest singing by,
Bearing leaves and flow'rs with thee,
To the lady of my heart,
Waft a benison from me.
Wind that rov'st around the grove,
Kissing [every]1 flower nigh,
I'll send thee on a sweeter search,
Bear my own true love my sigh!
Bark that show'st my graven words,
Thine be yet a happier lot,
May'st thou meet my Maiden's eye,
Bidding her: Forget me not!
