Poem by Thomas Moore


From Irish Melodies. 38. Love's Young Dream


          OH! the days are gone, when Beauty bright
                    My hearts chain wove;
          When my dream of life, from morn till night,
                    Was love, still love.
                    New hope may bloom,
                    And days may come,
                Of milder calmer beam,
          But theres nothing half so sweet in life
                As loves young dream:
          No, theres nothing half so sweet in life
                As loves young dream.

          Though the bard to purer fame may soar,
                    When wild youths past;
          Though he win the wise, who frownd before,
                    To smile at last;
                    Hell never meet
                    A joy so sweet,
                In all his noon of fame,
          As when first he sung to womans ear
                His soul-felt flame,
          And, at every close, she blushd to hear
                The one loved name.

          No,  that hallowd form is neer forgot
                    Which first love traced;
          Still it lingering haunts the greenest spot
                    On memorys waste.
                    Twas odour fled
                    As soon as shed;
                Twas mornings winged dream;
          Twas a light, tht neer can shine again
                On lifes dull stream:
          Oh! twas light that ner can shine again
                On lifes dull stream.
