On the bright river
See ripples quiver,
Sprites gaily trip it in intricate dance.
Joyfully playing,
Everywhere straying,
Merrily striving delight to enhance.
Past fragrant bowers,
Gliding mid flowers,
By the sweet sound of the nightingale's song;
Like the sprites roving,
Down the stream moving,
Floats the light shallop the green banks along.

On the bright river
See ripples quiver,
Sprites gaily trip it in intricate dance.
Joyfully playing,
Everywhere straying,
Merrily striving delight to enhance.
Breezes are flying,
Or gently sighing
Through the tall rushes, as onward we glide,
Under night's cover,
Dreams round us hover,
Hearts are still beating to time's flowing tide.
