Composer: Thomas Bateson
Original text and translations
Fair Hebe, when dame Flora meets
She trips and leaps as gallants do,
Up to the hills and down again;
To the valleys runs she to and fro.
But out, alas, when frosty locks
Begirt the head with care and pain,
Peace! laugh no more. Such youthful pranks,
Slow-crawling age forbids again.
