Light leaves whisper touched by the evening breeze
Pale moon beams glimmer A-falling thro’ the trees
Sweet are these sights to weary hearts,
Sweet are these sights to me
Tho’ I can understand them ne’er
Unless I am with thee.

The nightingale may melt his soul in song,
Shed all the thoughts which his small bosom throng
But Oh my love, my gentle love,
I never can understand
The hidden meaning of these thing
Unless thou art at hand.
