Words by May M. Terwillegar. Music by Anita Owen.

As twilight in beauty was fading,
And stars twinkled brightly above,
I met a beautiful maiden,
Who taught me the secret of love;
My heart longs again for her presence,
As I gaze, with a yearning untold,
On this memento of past joy and sorrow,
This plain little band of gold. 'Tis-

Only a little band of gold,
A maiden fair to see,
Wore this little band on her small white band,
As she pledged her troth to me.
'Tis only a little band of gold,
A maiden fair to see,
Wore this little band on her small white hand,
As she pledged her troth to me.

I placed it once more on her finger,
When nature was bright and fair,
While the birds gaily trilled in the tree-tope,
And wedding-bells pealed on the air,
She silently kissed the dear trinket,
And her eyes their sweet story then told,
As our lives were united forever
By this little band of gold.'-Refrain.

One day In false anger I left her,
And sailed far away o'er the foam,
But love soon conquered pride's anger-
I turned to my dear little home.
But In the old church-yard my darling
Was sleeping so silent and cold,
And all I retain of our love dream,
is this little band of gold. - Refrain.
