Song (There is dew for the flow'ret)
There is dew for the flow'ret* And honey for the bee, And bowers for the wild bird, And love for you and me. There are tears for the many And pleasures for the few; But let the world pass on, dear, There's love for me and you. There is care that will not leave us, And pain that will not flee; But on our hearth unalter'd Sits Love--'tween you and me. _Our_ love it ne'er was reckon'd, Yet good it is and true, It's _half_ the world to me, dear, It's _all_ the world to you.* The first two stanzas by Hood, the other two contributed by Barry Cornwall at the request of Mrs. Hood, with a view to the poem being set to music.
