O singer of PersephoneA
In the dim meadows desolateB
Dost thou remember SicilyC
-
Still through the ivy flits the beeC
Where Amaryllis lies in stateD
O Singer of PersephoneA
-
Simaetha calls on HecateD
And hears the wild dogs at the gateD
Dost thou remember SicilyC
-
Still by the light and laughing seaC
Poor Polypheme bemoans his fateD
O Singer of PersephoneA
-
And still in boyish rivalryC
Young Daphnis challenges his mateD
Dost thou remember SicilyC
-
Slim Lacon keeps a goat for theeC
For thee the jocund shepherds waitD
O Singer of PersephoneA
Dost thou remember SicilyC
