By W. B. Gray and G. L. Spaulding.

At the close of evening's dawn, in the twilight on a lawn,
A maiden and a boy eat side by side,
Said the happy, thoughtless lad, "Sister, why are you Sad?"
The blue-eyed girl caressed him and replied:
"Remember, little brother, earthly cares will ever live,
The tide of fate will always rise and fall,
And although I've seen through life many days of dismal strife,
To-day has been the saddest day of all.

"Yes, sadder than the saddest, lad, the saddest day of all,
And may It rest be-, and my mem'ry's call.
Of the bitter days I've known, since from childhood I have grown.
To-day has been the saddest day of all.

"Just at evening's dawn like this," said the sad, unhappy miss.
"One year ago to-night my heart was gay,
When my sweetheart at my side asked me if I'd be his bride,
We vowed we'd make to-day our wedding day.
But soon the love I thought so true, spied a fairer face,
And roamed beyond my beckon or my call,
And instead of wedding bells, laughter, song and joyous spells,
To-day has been the saddest day of all." - Chorus.
