Lyrics: Claudian (trans. Anon)

A sylvan scene, in solemn state display'd,
Flatters each feather'd warbler with a shade;
But here, no bird its painted wing can move,
Unless elected by the Queen of Love.
Ere made a member of this tuneful throng,
She hears the songster, and approves the song.
The joyous victors hop from spray to spray;
The vanquish'd fly with mournful notes away.
