When the voices of children are heard on the greenAnd laughing is heard on the hill,My heart is at rest within my breastAnd everything else is still.
When, voices, children, heard, greenAnd, laughing, heart, rest, within
Once she kissed me with a jest,Once with a tear —O where's the heart was in my breast,And the ring was in my ear?
Once, kissed, me, tear, where's, heart, ring, ear
Bend low, O dusky Night,And give my spirit rest,Hold me to your deep breast,And put old cares to flight.Give back the lost delightThat once my soul possest,When Love was loveliest.
Bend, low, dusky, give, spirit, me, deep, old, lost
