A glee composed and printed in Dublin.

Lyrics: Richard Barnefield

As it fell upon a day
In the merry month of May,
Sitting in a pleasant shade
Which a grove of myrtles made,
Beasts did leap and birds did sing,
Trees did grow and plants did spring;
Ev'rything did banish moan
Save the nightingale alone:
She, poor bird, as all forlorn
Leaning her breast against a thorn,
And there sung the doleful'st ditty,
That to hear it was great pity.

John Anthony Stevenson
(1761 - 1833)
