Good-morrow to the golden morning!
Good-morrow to the world's delight!
I've come to bless thy life's beginning,
That hath made my own so bright!


I love thee - I love thee,
'Tis all that I can say
It is my vision in the night,
My dreaming in the day.


Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine,
Love, thou art every day my Valentine!


So mayst thou live, dear! many years,
In all the bliss that life endears,
Not without smiles, nor yet from tears
Too strictly kept:
When first thy infant littleness
I folded in my fond caress,
The greatest proof of happiness
Was this - I wept.
