The Songs of Berton Braley. The Dreamer My Lady o' Dreams came down the way As sweet as ever the breath of May; She touched my hand with a light caress She fired my heart with her loveliness, Her voice set all my blood astir, And what could I do but follow her? My Lady o' Dreams is blithe and fair, With spells that lurk in her eyes and hair, And whither she beckons I needs must go Her deep enchantment hath bound me so; Yes I must follow and I must roam Till my Lady o' Dreams shall lead me home!
