Gray September sky,
Do you hear me sigh,
While the last red rose of summer whispers its goodbye,
Tiny fading rose,
Ere the songbird goes,
Send this message to the one who left me wond’ring why:
Does that day in May,
Seem as far away,
For in dreams to me it seems
‘Twas only yesterday,
When the ev’ning star,
Beams where e’er you are
Does that nightwind whisper to you all my heart would say?
Did you forget that day in May beside a garden wall
The dreams we dreamed the while we watched the springtime blossoms fall.
Summer is ending
Do you recall
That day in May we dreamed of love
Beside garden wall.
