Abstract

[Verse 1]
In my garden of vanished dreams,
In the land of pure delight,
I soar to where my love star gleams,
Thro' the purple haze of night,
in a magic boat I idly float,
Down rose embowered streams,
And care takes wing,
For love is King,
In my garden of vanished dreams.

[Chorus]
In my garden of vanished dreams,
That fade with the opal dawn,
The day is waste night bids me haste,
To where my dreams have gone,
Each lovely bloom,
Each sweet perfume with rare perfection teems,
No dark'ning shower beclouds the hour,
In my garden of vanished dreams.

[Verse 2]
In my garden of vanished dreams,
My dream love waits alway,
The rapture of the night redreams,
The promise of the day,
Where dreamlands kiss is perfect bliss,
Each smile with lovelight beams,
Fair entice, to paradise,
In my garden of vanished dreams.

[Chorus]
