The golden moon does brightly beam.
The silvered starlight softly gleam.
And I so madly, wildly dream
When she’s around.
My troubles seem to drop behind.
No anxious cares oppress my mind.
And nature’s face is always kind
When she’s around.
Mid hurrying noontide’s happy ray
And gathering twilight’s
To live is joy, through ali life s day
When she’s around.
