THE LIGHT OF ANNIE'S EYES.
Copyright. 1897. by Coupon Music Pub. Co.
How sweet our lovely trysting hour, when from the tender skies,
The stars like shining gems looked down to envy Annie's eyes;
While gentle zephyrs softly sigh, I wait my love to greet,
The fireflies glow among the flowers to light her coming feet.
On land or sea, where'er I be.
My heart to thee is drawn by fondest ties;
Whate'er betide, safe to thy side,
O! be my guide, the light of Annie's eyes.
She came to me and fondly, yet the mem'ry with me stays;
How that bright vision lightens all the toil of weary days;
How quickly sped the blissful time 'neath moonlight's silver rain,
How drear the wait for that sweet hour when we'll ne'er part again.
