2The birds sang sweet in the midd{.e}s of the day;
3I dreamed fast of mirth and play:
4    In youth is pleasure, in youth is pleasure.
5  Methought I walked still to and fro,
6And from her company I could not go;
7But when I wak'd it was not so:
8    In youth is pleasure, in youth is pleasure.
10Of her alone to have a sight,
11Which is my joy and heart's delight:
12    In youth is pleasure, in youth is pleasure.
