O happy rosebud blooming

Upon thy parent tree,
 +
Nay, thou art too presuming
 +
For soon the earth entombing
 +
Thy faded charms shall be,
 +
And the chill damp consuming.

 +
O happy skylark springing
 +
Up to the broad blue sky,

Too fearless in thy winging,
 +
Too gladsome in thy singing,

Thou also soon shalt lie
 +
Where no sweet notes are ringing.
 +
 
 +
And through life's shine and shower

We shall have joy and pain;

But in the summer bower,
 +
And at the morning hour,
 +
We still shall look in vain
 +
For the same bird and flower. }}

O happy rosebud blooming
Upon thy parent tree,
Nay, thou art too presuming
For soon the earth entombing
Thy faded charms shall be,
And the chill damp consuming.

O happy skylark springing
Up to the broad blue sky,
Too fearless in thy winging,
Too gladsome in thy singing,
Thou also soon shalt lie
Where no sweet notes are ringing.

And through life's shine and shower
We shall have joy and pain;
But in the summer bower,
And at the morning hour,
We still shall look in vain
For the same bird and flower.
