The aim shines softly through flowers aoove

And the muilc Mia ot woe.

When lovo ami the hour arc bright.
And the llowera dunce round tha Hying feet,
And the tinging growa sweet and clear,
And the atrotig aun glitter my love to greet
Aa lie klaaei away mr fear;
For my little aweetheart la seven today,
And whisper, aa under th flowers we stray,

Tho planting of rare things may be
