Moonlit Night on Southern Waters.

Words by Florence N. Reynolds. Music by D. H. Moglll.
The moon shines brightly on the river, the air is sweet with perfume rare.
And all is peace-the world forgetting, there is not in it grief or care,
Above the rippling of the waters, a bird's sweet notes my thoughts recall;
They travel to me from the distance, a midnight greeting auto all,
Could life know naught but peace of moonlight, could it be filled with fragrant flowers
The songs of birds our only greeting, oh, what a world would then be ours.
Could life know naught but pence of moonlight, etc.
Oh, moonlit night on Southern waters; oh, charming bird notes, do not cease;
To me, a wanderer, they carry a world of comfort and of peace;
Oh, moonlit night on Southern waters, oh, charming bird notes, do not cease,
To me, a wanderer, they carry a world of comfort and of peace.
