Original text and translations
Chloe farewell. Now seas, with boisterous pride,
Divide us, and will ever far divide:
Yet while each plant, which vernal youth resumes,
Feels the green blood ascend in future blooms;
While little feather'd songsters of the air
I woodlands tuneful woo and fondly pair,
The muse exults, to beauty tunes the lyre,
And willing loves the swelling notes inspire.
