Original text and translations
1 The beam of morning trembling
Stole o'er, the mountain brook,
With timid ray resembling,
Affection's early look.
Thus love begins, sweet morn of love.
2 The noontide ray ascended,
And o'er the valley's stream
Diffused a glow as splendid,
As passion's riper dream.
Thus love expands, warm noon of love.
3 But evening came, o'ershading
The glories of the sky,
Like faith and fondness fading,
From passion's altered eye.
Thus love declines, cold eve of love.
