reaper quotes- 5 of
You are the harvest and not the reaper
And of your domain another is the keeper.
Will no one tell me what she sings?--
Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
A voice so thrilling ne'er was heard
In spring-time from the Cuckoo-bird,
Behold her, single in the field,
Yon solitary Highland Lass!
The music in my heart I bore,
Long after it was heard no more.
