From a "second collection of glees composed by members of the Harmonic Society of Cambridge", 1799.
Lyrics: William Vernon

Happy the man, whom heaven ordained
To tune the slender oaten reed;
And on his own paternal plains
His flock to feed.

Under some shady tree reclin'd,
Close by a flowery fountain's side,
To carve upon the tender rind
Is all his pride.

Sweet Rosalinda's pleasing name
On every neighbouring tree is found;
And with sweet Rosalinda's name
The woods resound.
