Words:
The Last
Rose of Summer

 
'TIS THE LAST ROSE OF SUMMER,
LEFT BLOOMING ALONE;

ALL HER LOVELY COMPANIONS
ARE FADED AND GONE;

NO FLOW'R OF HER KINDRED,
NO ROSE BUD IS NIGH,

TO REFLECT BACK HER BLUSHES,
OR GIVE SIGH FOR SIGH!

I' LL NOT LEAVE THEE, THOU LONE
ONE, TO PINE ON THE STEM;

SINCE THE LOVELY ARE SLEEPING,
GO, SLEEP THOU WITH THEM;

THUS KINDLY I SCATTER
THY LEAVES O'ER THE BED,

WHERE THY MATES OF THE GARDEN
LIE SCENTLESS AND DEAD.

SO SOON MAY I FOLLOW,
WHEN FRIENDSHIPS DECAY,

AND FROM LOVE'S SHINING CIRCLE
THE GEMS DROP AWAY!

WHEN TRUE HEARTS LIE WITHER'D,
AND FOND ONES ARE FLOWN,

OH! WHO WOULD INHABIT
THIS BLEAK WORLD ALONE?

                                  MOORE
