When ev'ning's twilight gathers round;
When ev'ry flow'r is hush'd to rest;
When autumn leaves breathe not a sound,
And ev'ry bird flies to its nest;
When dewdrops kiss the blushing rose,
When stars are glitt'ring from above!
Then I think of thee, my love,
I think of thee, my love,
Then O then I think of thee.
