A Spring o'erhung with many a flow'r,The grey sand dancing in its bed,Embank'd beneath a Hawthorn bower,Sent forth its waters near my head:A rosy Lass approach'd my view;I caught her blue eye's modest beam:The stranger nodded 'How d'ye do!'And leap'd across the infant stream.
Then rose from sea to sky the wild farewell Then shriek'd the timid, and stood still the brave, Then some leap'd overboard with fearful yell, As eager to anticipate their grave.lord byron
The twilight hours, like birds flew by, as lightly and as free. Ten thousand stars were in the sky, ten thousand on the sea. For every wave with dimpled face that leap'd upon the air, had caught a star in its embrace and held it trembling there.
