Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright

1. Sweet day! so cool, so calm, so bright,
Bridal of earth and sky,
The dew shall weep thy fall to-night,
For thou, alas! must die.

2. Sweet rose! in air whose odors wave,
And color charms the eye,
Thy root is ever in its grave,
And thou, alas! must die.

3. Sweet spring! of days and roses made,
Who charms for beauty vie,
Thy days depart, thy roses fade;
Thou, too, alas! must die.

4. Only a sweet and holy soul
Hath tints that never fly;
While flower decay, and seasons roll,
This lives, and cannot die.
