'Tis sad but sweet to dwell,
Where falling leaves and drooping flowers
Around me breathe farewell.
Along thy sunset skies
Their glories melt in shade,
And like the things we fondly pros,
Keem lovelier as they fade
A deep and crimson streak
Thy dying leaves disclose,
As on Consumption's waning hesir
'Mid ruin, blooms the rose,
Thy scene each vision brings
Of beauty in decay;
Of fair and early faded things,
Too exquisite to stay.
Of Joys that come no more;
Of tlowers whose bloom is Bed ;
Of farewells wept upon the shore,
Of friends estrauged or dead,
Of ail that now may seem,
To memory's tearful eye.
The vanished beauty of a dream.
O'er which we pazo and sigh.
