Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Sweet object of the Zephyr's kiss
Come rose, come courted to my bow'r;
Queen of the banks, the garden's bliss,
Come and abash yon tawdry flow'r.
Why call us to revokeless doom?
With grief the op'ning buds reply;
Not suffered to extend our bloom,
Scarce born, alas, before we die.
Man having passed appointed years,
Ours are but days, the scene must close;
And when fate's messenger appears
What is he but a with'red rose?
