There comes a day when Love, that lies asleep,
The fairest island in the mighty deep,
Wakes on our sight;
There do we stay awhile; but soon again
We trim our sails to seek the open main;
And now, whatever winds and waves betide,
Two friendly ships are sailing side by side.
In port of Love 'twas happy to abide,
But, oh! Love's sea is very deep and wide.
