JOAN, when the twilight shadows fall
And you are standing by the old lych gate,
Do gentle zephyrs ever softly call
My name to you and tell you that I wait?
Does no soft breathing of the scented eve
Recall the happy dreams we had of old,
When in your bonnie eyes my world lie hid?
Without their light the world is dark and cold.

Joan, as of old, within my heart
Thy memory aye shall live in tender shrine,
And O, I pray that life will leave no smart
Or aught but peace and happiness in thine.
Then in the afterwards our hands may meet,
Which here seem fated to remain afar;
Yet I am better to have known you, sweet,
And your dear eyes shall be my guiding star.
