Songs That Every Child Should Know 167

To pine on the stem; Since the lovely are sleeping,
Go, sleep thou with them; Thus kindly I scatter
Thy leaves o'er the bed Where thy mates of the garden
Lie senseless and dead.

When friendships decay, And from love's shining circle
The gems drop away! When true hearts lie wither'd,
And fond ones are flown, Oh ! who would inhabit
This bleak world alone?

From Sheridan's Comedy of The School for Scandal.
