Words by H. A. H. Music by L. C. Schwind.

When fragrant roses are in bloom, and their sweetness fills the air,
And verdant fields yield their perfume, I think of her so fair,
Of golden moments hap'ly spent, upon the meadow's crest,
I plucked a rose for her I loved, and pinned it on her breast.
And now all those joyful days are forever past,
But love's memories will forever last.

And when the roses are in bloom, and foliage on the trees,
There comes to me 'mid sweet perfume, fond love's sweet memories.

On stalwart oak I carved a heart, and together our names placed,
I sought that oak in after years, but, found the heart effaced:
Some time she'll think of that sweet rose I plucked for her that day,
And of the heart carved in that oak, now ions since passed away.
And dream of those joyful days, now forever past,
For love's memories will forever last- Refrain.
