"Sung by Mrs Second at the Bath Concerts.Compos'd by Mr Brooks".

Lyrics: Anne Hughes

'Twas on the Severn's sedgy margin
Where pensive Damon chanced to stray,
All on the moss-grown bank reclining,
He tuned to the winds his careless lay.

Stupendous mountains heard his murm'ring,
Sweet echo heard his plaintive song;
Strong pendent rocks the wild notes warbling,
Adown the dale soft notes prolong.

How sad his fate, whose heart e'er changing,
That roves at large and fixed by none;
How happier he who, free from ranging,
Still fondly loves, and loves but one.

James Brooks
(1760 - 1809)

'Twas on the Severn's sedgy margin
