Listen to the song

Aura-lea

When the black bird in the Spring
on the willow tree.
Sad and wrought I heard him sing
singing Aura-lea.
Aura-lea, Aura-lea
maid of golden hair
Sunshine came along with thee
and swallows in the air.

(Chorus)
Aura-lea....
maid of golden hair
Sunshine came along with thee
and swallows in the air.

In thy blush the rose was born.
Music when you spake.
Thru thine azure eye the morn
sparkling seemd to break
Aura-lea, Aura-lea 
birds of crimson wing
Never song has sung to me
as in that sweet spring.

(Chorus)

When the mistletoe was green
midst the winter snows.
Sunshine in thy face was seen
kissing lips of rose.
Aura-lea, Aura-lea
take my golden ring
love and life return with thee
Swallows in the spring.

(Chorus)
