DRESDEN CHINA(A Twilight Fancy)
Words by F. E. Weatherly. Music by J. L. Molloy.

In the twilight as I play
And fancies come and go,
And dreamland falls on the old oak walls
From the firelight's fitful glow,
Side by side in the corner wide
Stand a little lass and lad,
And through the gloom of my lonely room
Come their two little faces glad.
Side by side in the corner wide
I watch their ev'ry look,
She peeps at him 'neath her hat's white brim
As he leans on his little crook;
Hour by hour I watch them there,
But they take no heed of me;
They make my dark room bright and fair,
The little He and She.

As I dream in the flickering gleam
He takes her wee sweet hand.
And to and fro in a measure slow
They tread a saraband;
Still they dance and still they play
Till the music gives a sigh.
As dancing aye they fade away
And in the shadows die.
Dimness falls on the old oak walls,
And loneliness on me;
When they are gone my song is done
And the music hushed must be.
Oh, how I loved to watch them there.
Though they took no heed of me;
They were only Dresden china fair,
The little He and She.
