The timeless blossoms of a jaunty spring
Leads my mind to the memory of your smile,
To times long past, these visions so do bring
Sweet respites where I linger for a while;
To shaded gardens where we hid from rain,
To sunny walks along a river grand;
Astride white horses, galloping the plain,
Or golden beaches, footprints burned in sand;
But spring fades into summer and beyond
And love like time must have its seasons too,
I woke one morn to find that you were gone
Yet why you left, I swear I never knew;
Still when in vernal light a bloom I see
My heart does smile, and you return to me.
