And where thy fairy flowers in groups are found The schoolboy roams enchantedly along, Plucking the fairest with a rude delight ; While the meek shepherd stops his simple song, To gaze a moment on the pleasing sight : O'erjoyed to see the flowers that truly bring The welcome news of sweet returning Spring.
