Ah! 'Tis a Dream (1887)

My native land again once meets my eye,
The old oaks raise their boughs on high;
The violets greeting seem:
Ah! ’tis a dream, Ah! ’tis a dream.

I feel the kiss that was in youth so dear,
The words “I love” fall on my ear;
I see the eyes soft beam:
Ah! ’tis a dream, Ah! ’tis a dream.

And now when far in distant lands I roam,
My heart still wanders to my home;
But while these fancies teem,
still let me dream, still let me dream.
