My days have been so wondrous free, The Little birds that fly With Careless ease from tree to tree, Were but as blest as I, Were but as blest as I. Ask the gliding waters, If a tear of mine Increased their stream, And ask the breathing gales If ever I lent a sigh to them, If I lent a sigh to them.
— My days Have Been So Wondrous Free, 1759
— Francis Hopkinson
