A Song. The Lover The Lute Of His Deceased Mistress.

John Carr, Sir 1772 – 1832 (London, United Kingdom)



Alas! but like a summer's dream
All the delight I felt appears,
While mis'ry's weeping moments seem
A ling'ring age of tears.

Then breathe my sorrows, plaintive lute!
And pour thy soft consoling tone,
While I, a list'ning mourner mute,
Will call each tender grief my own.
