In Its soft and creamy bed;
The tinted clouds stole softly ?
To hid him n sweet good night.
They Uhgored a few short moment!",
Thou vitnlshcd from our sight.
We were nlono In the garden,
I and my Plstcr EMI?.
Wo were taking one last look
Of the homo we loved so well.
For noon we'd have to leave It.
And sail for a distant shore;
We'd nee the dear old gateway
And the vino-clad porch no more.
The dear old trees In the orchard.
Where we both had loved to play,
Would shelter hp no longer
Through the long, hot, summer day;
In the loving arms we'd alt no more
And list to the blrdHngs sing.
Other feet than otll'S would trend
The well-worn path to the swing.
As wo sal there in the shadow
And thought of the last pad years
The lender memory of days gon? by
Stirred our hrok?n hearts to tears;
And nt last we rose and parted.
Bach *o our own little room.
The rooms we'd loved since childhood
In the home no longer home.
