Oh! that my soul had winged its flight,
When first I saw the morning light,
To worlds of liberty!
I leave my parents here behind
And all my friends to love resigned
'Tis grief to go, but death to stay
Farewell -- I'm gone with love away.
My genius from a boy
Has fluttered like a bird within my heart;
But could not thus confined her power employ,
Impatient to depart.
