Colin's Invitation


Rosalind Oh! come and see
what Pleasures are in store for Thee
The Flow'rs in all their sweets appear
The Fields their gayest Beauties wear.

The joyfull Birds in ev'ry Grove
now warble out their Songs of Love
For Thee they sing and Roses bloom
and Colin Thee invites to come.

Come Rosalind, and Colin joyn,
My tender Flocks and all are thine:
If Love and Rosalind be here,
Tis May and Pleasure all the Year:

Come see a Cottage and a swain,
Thou can'st my Love nor Gifts disdain:
Leave all behind, nor longer stay,
For Colin calls, then haste away.
