Lyrics: Anna Letitia Barbauld

Hail to pleasure's frolic train,
Hail to fancy's golden reign;
Festive mirth and laughter wild,
Free and sportive as a child;
Hope with eager sparkling eyes,
And easy faith and soft surprise.
Let these, in fairy colours dressed,
Forever share my careless breast.
Then, though wise I may not be,
The wise themselves may envy me.
