Ye happy fields, unknown to noise and strife,
The kind rewarders of industrious life;
Shady woods, where once I used to rove,
Alike indulgent to the muse and love;
Ye murm'ring streams that in meanders roll,
The sweet composers of the pensive soul;
Farewell, the city calls me from your bow'rs,
Farewell, amusing thoughts and peaceful hours.
