               A SONG

On a summer's day as I sat by a stream,
  A dainty maid came by,
  And she blessed my sight like a rosy dream,
And left me there to sigh, to sigh,
  And left me there to sigh, to sigh.

On another day as I sat by the stream,
  This maiden paused a while,
  Then I made me bold as I told my dream,
She heard it with a smile, a smile,
  She heard it with a smile, a smile.

Oh, the months have fled and the autumn's red,
  The maid no more goes by:
  For my dream came true and the maid I wed,
And now no more I sigh, I sigh,
  And now no more I sigh.
