Love, Morn, and Music by Launcelot Cranmer-Byng

Oh! give me love, with the trees above,
In the dells where dewdrops cluster,
Heaven’s heart of blue, and a trellised view
Of morn’s magnificent lustre,

And joy’s bright bird in the clouds half heard,
Or the cuckoo faintly calling,
Hushed happiness in the close caress
Of passion that’s never palling.

From: Cranmer-Byng, L. (Paganus), Poems of Paganism; or, Songs of Life and Love, 1895, The Roxburghe Press: London, p. 58.
