SADLY TO MINE HEART APPEALING
3 Like the winds in autumn sighing
Through the trembling alder tree, Or far surges' echo dying,
Soft and low those voices flee; And, as hues in twilight fading,
Swift those gentle forms decay; Vainly, vainly, hope upbraiding,
Bids them pass not all away.
4 Ghost-like thus they wane before me,
Quench'd their lustre, fled their bloom, While pale mem'ry, tearful, o'er me
Flings the shadow of the tomb. Sadly to mine heart appealing,
Sadly, sadly, well-a-day, Requiem-like, in murmurs stealing,
Comes that old familiar lay.
THOU ART THE QUEEN OF MY SONG
