The birds sleeping gently,
Sweet Luna gleameth bright,
Her rays tinge the forest,
And all seems glad tonight.
The wind sighing by me,
Cooling my fevered brow;
The stream flows as ever,
Yet Alice, Where art thou?
One year back this even,
And thou wert by my side,
One year back this even,
And thou wert by my side.
Vowing to love me;
One year past this even
And thou wert by my side,
Vowing to love me,
Alice, What e'er might betide!

The silver rain falling,
Just as it falleth now,
And all things slept gently,
Oh! Alice, where art thou?
I've sought thee by lakelet,
I've sought thee on the hill;
And in the pleasant wildwood,
When winds blow cold and chill.
I've sought thee in forest,
I'm looking heav'nward now.
Oh! there 'mid the starshine;
I've sought thee in forest
I'm looking heav'nward now,
Oh! there amid the starshine
Alice I know, art thou!
