The Maniacs Song To The Wind

Why, O wind of summer.
Why that restless moan?
Weepest thou for pleasures
That are past and gone?
Mournest thou for visions
That have fled away,
Or hopes which only flourished
To wither and decay?

Hath thy loved-one left thee
To misfortune's smart,
With a wounded spirit
And a broken heart?
Grievest thou like Ellen,
O, thou moaning wind,
For the scorn and pity
Of a world unkind?

Let us mourn together,
O! thou midnight blast,
For the joys which wither,
For the woes which last!
For the scorn and falsehood
Which have seared my mind,
Weep and mourn with Ellen,
Sweet, sweet summer wind!

Poor she is in things of earth, Poor in worldly treasure, But she hath a smile of light. And an eye of hazel bright, Beaming love and pleasure. A

"Rosen auf den Weg gestreut "Und des Harm vergessen." Strew roses on the way, And think no more of grief, Short is the passing day, Short-lived the summer leaf; Short is our mortal span-- Then, ere the minutes die, 'Tis Wisdom's wisest plan To gild them as they fly: The present only is our own, The future dark, and all unknown. Then, O give Grief and Care, O give them to the blast, And make the present fair And brighter than the past! And make the glasses ring, As ye quaff the cheering wine, And a merry chorus sing, Beneath the
