O bird with heart of wassailA
That toss the Bacchic branchB
And slip your shaken musicC
An elfin avalancheB
-
Come tell me O tell meD
My poet of the blueA
What's YOUR thought of me SweetE
Here's MY thought of youA
-
A small thing a wee thingF
A brown fleck of noughtE
With winging and singingF
That who could have thoughtE
-
A small thing a wee thingF
A brown amaze withalA
That fly a pitch more azureG
Because you're so smallA
-
Bird I'm a small thingF
My angel descriesH
With winging and singingF
That who could surmiseH
-
Ah small things ah wee thingsH
Are the poets allA
Whose tour's the more azureG
Because they're so smallA
-
The angels hang watchingF
The tiny men thingsH
'The dear speck of flesh seeH
With such daring wingsH
-
'Come tell us O tell usH
Thou strange mortalityH
What's THY thought of us DearI
Here's OUR thought of thee '-
-
'Alack you tall angelsH
I can't think so highJ
I can't think what it feels likeK
Not to be I '-
-
Come tell me O tell meH
My poet of the blueA
What's YOUR thought of me SweetE
Here's MY thought of youA
