And at once the voices once silent, now inspire
Weel, sit thee down, an’ hark what I’ve to say.
Setting in woodlands so illumined and fair
Who can describe the colours asplendour through the day
O western forest, what dost ye hold
Now ere the autumn’s scarlet leaves
Alight upon bright crowns of triple gold!
Flutter as birds adown the wold,
The Flowers of the Forest are a’ wede away.
O! day-time is weary, an’ dark o’ dusk dreary
O’er the spreading woods and forests
For the Flowers o’ the Forest have all stown away.
O bring me a leaf from the Old Forest,
A tuft from the stoic Scots pine;
A leaf from the elm and high Poplar tree
And a branch of blue spruce combine.
Out of the mid-wood’s twilight
Into the meadow’s dawn,
Ivory limbed and brown-eyed,
Flashes my Faun!
And as the golden sunset sparkles more,
Which, rambling, shines through the leafy trees,
Then came the vision of the night before
A bright and wondrous vision in the mind.
The little quivering disk of golden fire
Amid the forest, gold lit, illumined and fair,
Breeze whisper gentle, dancing with joy
Who can describe them, who sings where?
