Forget Me Not

Dublin Core

Title

Forget Me Not

Description

Where flows the fountain silently,

It blooms a lovely flower,

Blue as the beauty of the sky,
And speaks like kind fidelity,

Through fortune's sun and shower -

"Forget me not."

'Tis like thy starry eyes, more bright

Than evening's proudest star,

Like painting's own halo light
It seems to smile upon thy sight,

And says to thee from far -

"Forget me not."

When by the lonely fount we meet,

And weep so soon to part,

That flower springs up beneath our feet,
And sighs, as if it will'd to greet

A kindred broken heart -

"Forget me not."

Each dew drop on its morning leaves

Is eloquent as tears,

That whisper, when young passion grieves
For one beloved afar, and weaves

His dream of hopes and fears -

"Forget me not."
