Lyrics: Alexander Pope

Ye gentle muses, leave your crystal spring,
Let nymphs and sylvans cypress garlands bring:
Ye weeping loves, the stream with myrtles hide,
And break your bows, as when Adonis died:
And with your golden darts, now useless grown,
Inscribe a verse on this relenting stone.
Let Nature change, let heav'n and earth deplore:
Fair Daphne's dead, and Love is now no more.
