on moonless nights as this i find
in aimless flights of dreams, my mind
and though a million thoughts cruise by
the last one ever makes me sigh
i’ve dreamt of hills and mountains tall
greens and plains, i’ve seen them all
the moon and stars are common sights
likewise the sun with brilliant light
on earth the sweetest songs i’ve heard
and all but one were sung with words:
all haunting tunes of love-worn lines
that fade too soon with passing time.
the sweetest song if ever true
all nature sings when i’m with you.
