We Sat by the River, You and I.

We sat by the river, you and I,
In the sweet summer time, long ago,
So smoothly the water glided by,
Making music in its tranquil flow;
We threw two leaflets, you and I,
To the river as it wandered on,
And one was rent and left to die,
And the other floated forward all alone.
And, oh! we were saddened, you and ],
For we felt that our youth's golden dream
Might fade, and our lives be severed soon.
As the two leaves were parted in the stream.

Tie years since we parted, you and I,
In that sweet summer time, long ago,
And I smile as I pass the river by.
And I gaze into the shadow depths below;
I look on the gross and bending reeds,
And I listen to the soothing song,
And I euvy the calm and happy life
Of the river as it sings and flows along;
For oh! how its song bringe back to me
The shade of our youth's golden dream,
In the days ere we parted, you and I,
As the two leaves were parted in the stream.
