No. 4 - Song - Poppy - "A posy from over the sea"

MIDI File

Poppy: Once I was free to roam
Over the fields at home,
Watching the grasses swaying
Break into flow'rs like foam.
If I could have my will,
I'd be in England still
After the cowslips straying
Over the grassy hill!
Ah, could the breeze or the bee
Bring back the sweetness to me,
Breath of a rosy wild flower, posy,
A posy from over the sea!
Blossoms ablaze on the tree,
What is their splendour to me?
Give me the rosy sweet little posy,
A posy from over the sea!
   
  Beautiful gardens here
Change with the changing year,
They have no flow'r to show me
Such as my heart holds dear!
Strange are the blooms that fall
Over the trellis'd wall,
Beauty around, below me,
Never the best of all!
Ah, could the breeze or the bee
Bring back the sweetness to me,
Breath of a rosy wild flower, posy,
A posy from over the sea!
Blossoms ablaze on the tree,
What is their splendour to me?
Give me the rosy sweet little posy,
A posy from over the sea!
From over the sea!
From over the sea!
