Words and Music by Edgar Selden.

To-day an odd thing happen'd, that recalled the by-gone years,
When life seem'd fraught with sunshine, when sweet smiles dispelled all fears;
In a half forgotten casket, in a dusty, cobweb nook,
I found some old love-letters, that read like a fairy book.

Old love-letters, tied with ribbon blue:
Letters from the sweetheart that I once thought true.
Still I fondly read them, tho' my heart may throb and break;
Old love-letters, just for old love's sake.

Then day dreams seemed more golden, for I thought my love was true;
I pictured home an Eden, where, contented, dwelt we two.
But another stole the treasure of the heart, since passed away,
And thus our romance ended with these letters found to-day.- Chorus.
