  1. A Song

    It being in the blooming Summer time when meadows they were in their prime

    It being in the blooming Summer time
    when meadows they were in their prime,
    To take the air I was inclined
    And carelessy did range,
    Where primroses & violets blue,
    And daisies o'er the plains were strew,
    My onward course I did pursue,
    Till I arrived in Grange.
    II

    A sunny cottage by the road,
    Wherein a damsel sang & sewed
    Whose melodies could change
    Man's darkest sorrow into bliss
