Aura Lee

As the blackbird in the spring             
'neath the willow tree 
Sat and piped, I heard him sing          
sing of Aura Lee. 
Aura Lee, Aura Lee    
maid with golden hair   
Sunshine came along with thee                
and swallows in the air. 

In thy blush the rose was born                
music when you spake. 
Through thine azure eye, the morn               
sparkling seemed to break. 
Aura Lee, Aura Lee,             
birds of crimson wing 
Never song have sung to me        
as in that night, sweet spring. 
Aura Lee, the bird may flee               
the willow's golden hair     
Swing through winter fitfully,            
on the stormy air. 
Yet if thy blue eyes I see,   
gloom will soon depart.  
For to me, sweet Aura Lee 
is sunshine through the heart. 
When the mistletoe was green,              
midst the winter's snows   
Sunshine in thy face was seen               
kissing lips of rose. 
Aura Lee, Aura Lee,     
take my golden ring.  
Love and light return with thee, and               
swallows with the spring.
