MY LOVE BEYOND THE SEA.
I met my love in a dream last night,
My love beyond the sea;
His brow was bright with a laurel wreath,
And bonny and brave looked he.
We met where the lime-trees shade the dell,
And the waters murmur low;
'Twas the trysting spot we knew so well
In the Summers long ago.
The morning came, my bright dream fled
Like a star at break of day;
But the hope within my loving heart
Will never pass away.
We shall meet again beside the spot
We. used to know so well,
Where the Summer waters murmur low,
And the lime-trees shade the dell.
