Abstract

'Tis more than vain to bid me seek,
In other lands a peaceful home;
'Tis easy such light words to speak,
But hearts there are that cannot roam.
Mountain and vale might loveliest be,
But doom'd from thee to live apart
How lonely all would seem to me,
My home must be where'er thou art.
How lonely all wold seem to me
My home must be where'er thou art.

2d verse
My love finds no response from thine,
Some happier one will share thy lot;
But whilst remembrance still is mine,
Some joy remains thou unforgot.
Our spirits in my dreams will meet,
Like kindred streams too long apart
So in my visions false yet sweet,
Thou wilt be mine where'er thou art.
So in my visions false yet sweet
Thou wilt be mine where'er thou art.
