Perhaps the most acclaimed item from Twelve canzonets, Op. 9. A copy of this work was held in the collection of music formed by the Austen family.
Lyrics: James Hammond

Time has not thinned my flowing hair
Nor bent me with his iron hand;
Ah! Why so soon the blossom tear,
E'er Autumn yet the fruit demand!

Let me enjoy the cheerful day
'Til many a year has o'er me rolled;
Pleased, let me trifle life away
And sing of love e'er I grow old.
