BALLADS AND LYRICS.

WAITING FOR THE MAY.

  Ah! my heart is weary waiting,
    Waiting for the May—­
Waiting for the pleasant rambles,
Where the fragrant hawthorn brambles,
  With the woodbine alternating,
    Scent the dewy way. 
  Ah! my heart is weary waiting,
    Waiting for the May.

  Ah! my heart is sick with longing,
    Longing for the May—­
Longing to escape from study,
To the young face fair and ruddy,
  And the thousand charms belonging
    To the summer’s day. 
  Ah! my heart is sick with longing,
    Longing for the May.
