First Line: When love's brief dream is done
Last Line: Remember through the night.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John

When love's brief dream is done
Pass on. Nor hope to see again
The burnished glow of yesterday
Gone with its setting sun.

Know this, the little while of love
Is fleeting as a cloud,
As lissom as a zephyr's breath,
As fickle as a crowd.

Its gleaming rainbow flames the sky --
Enthralls -- then fades from sight:
Love for a day, an hour and then --
Remember through the night.
