Song (For Me the Jasmine Buds Unfold)

For me the jasmine buds unfold
⁠     And silver daisies star the lea,
The crocus hoards the sunset gold,
⁠     And the wild rose breathes for me.
I feel the sap through the bough returning,
⁠     I share the skylark's transport fine,
I know the fountain's wayward yearning,
     ⁠I love, and the world is mine!

I love, and thoughts that sometime grieved,
     ⁠Still well remembered, grieve not me;
From all that darkened and deceived
⁠     Upsoars my spirit free.
For soft the hours repeat one story,
     ⁠Sings the sea one strain divine;
My clouds arise all flushed with glory,
     ⁠I love, and the world is mine!
