Elizabeth's Song

Language: English

Shining  white clouds in the cherry trees tangled, 
And over the orchard snowing ;
Silver wild cherries on the hill-side spangled,
And bright among bronze oaks blowing :
So white, so bright, so fragrantly
Heart's delight blossoms in me.
Swallows come back to their endless careering
In love and in finest feather ;
Swerving down, close to the cowslips nearing,
Then high in the golden weather :
In air so bright, with such a flight,                      
Dances on wings my heart's delight.

Submitted by Ferdinando Albeggiani
