MS: 'Sensibility how charming'

Song ----

Sensibility how charming,
Thou, my friend, canst truly tell;
But distress with horrors arming,
Thou hast also known too well. ----

Fairest flower, behold the lily
Blooming in the sunny ray;
Let the blast sweep o'er the valley,
See it prostrate on the clay. ----

Hear the wood-lark charm the forest,
Telling o'er his little joys;
Hepless bird! a prey the surest
To each pirate of the skies. ----

Dearly bought the hidden treasure
Finer feelings can bestow:
Chords that vibrate sweetest pleasure,
Thrill the deepest notes of woe. ----
