There was laughter amid the roses,
For it was their natal day;
And the children in the garden were
As light of heart as they.

There were sighs amid the roses,
For the night was coming on;
And the children -- weary now of play --
Were ready to be gone.

There are tears amid the roses,
For the children are asleep;
And the silence of the garden makes
The lonely blossoms weep.
