DEAR bygone days, when with the Dawn we wandered
Beside the dell where laughed the sun-kissed stream,
Soft spray in rainbow mists about us weaving
Its fairy tints into our happy dream.

Still smiles the Dawn on all we loved so dearly,
Still gleam the rainbow mists above the fall,
But to my heart the waters murmur sadly
Since you have left me, love, my life, my all.

Come, love, in dreams, for days are long and weary,
And we will watch beside the waters bright,
And kneeling hand in hand will pray the Dawn
To raise no more the curtains of the night.
