Alone at home I dwell, content and free,

The soft May sun comes with his greeting fair;
And, like a lute, my heart thrills tremblingly

By the Spring's fingers touched to some sweet air.
Blessed be thou, my God, who from my face

Tak'st the pale cast of thought that weary lowers!
My chamber walls—my narrow window space
Hold all most dear to me: old books, fresh flowers.
