Hither hither, love-
'Tis a shady mead-
Hither, hither, love!
Let us feed and feed!

Hither, hither, sweet-
'Tis a cowslip bed-
Hither, hither, sweet!
'Tis with dew bespread!

Hither, hither, dear
By the breath of life,
Hither, hither, dear!-
Be the summer's wife!

Though one moment's pleasure
In one moment flies-
Though the passion's treasure
In one moment dies;-

Yet it has not passed-
Think how near, how near!-
And while it doth last,
Think how dear, how dear!

Hither, hither, hither
Love its boon has sent-
If I die and wither
I shall die content!
