Returned am I, my trusted sweetheart dead;
Upon her lonely grave Golgotha's Cross,
Upon the stone the dreaded legend "Gone!"
Upon the mound a spray of hawthorn moss.

She went when Springtime kissed the sleeping earth,
Too soon to fall the prey of brooding grief.
For one who shall be lonely through the years,
She gave the God of Death a life too brief.

I care not now what woes may fall on me,
The sorrow infinite is ever mine.
Beside the river Lethe I shall muse,
But never taste the sweetness of the wine.
