The winds are laughing along the fields,
The birds are singing, the flowers are fair;
My feet are light on the hills of joy,
And morning brings not a thought of care.
The sunlight dances across the waves,
And bright are your eyes, my heart's delight!
And life is a song we two can sing --
And the river of time runs fast tonight.

The winds are sobbing along the fields,
The birds are silent, the trees are bare;
My feet have forgotten the hills of joy
And morning comes with its stab of care;
The sunlight glances across the waves --
Your eyes are dim -- O my heart's delight!
And life is a song one cannot sing
So the river of time runs slow tonight.
