Where the flowers are sweetly sleeping,
In the deep and silent grove,
There the moon’s soft beams are creeping
To speak of love.

Where the bird’s wee nest is swinging
In the beeches boughs above,
There the moon’s pale beams are bringing
A thought of love.

Where the night-bird’s song is sounding,
With the gently cooing dove,
There the quivering leaves are bounding
To notes of love.
