Love’s Young Dream
By Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
(See full text.)

O, THE DAYS are gone, when Beauty bright
    My heart’s chain wove;
When my dream of life, from morn till night,
    Was love, still love.
    New hope may bloom,        5
    And days may come,
  Of milder, calmer beam;
But there’s nothing half so sweet in life
  As love’s young dream.
