1  Amidst the myrtles as I walk,
Love and myself thus enter talk,
Tell me, said I, in deep distress,
Where I may find my shepherdess.

2  I've searched the groves and fragrant bowers,
Where oft I've culled her sweetest flowers,
I've search'd each mead and verdant plain
To find my love, but all in vain.

3  Why did my Silvia from me rove,
Why did she quit her shepherd's love;
Return my Silvia to her swain.
And ease her anxious lover's pain.
