1
    Meet me by moonlight alone,
  And then I will tell you a tale
Must be told by the moonlight alone,
  In the grove at the end of the vale!
You must promise to come, for I said
  I would show the night-flowers their queen.
Nay, turn not away that sweet head,
  ’T is the loveliest ever was seen.
          Meet me by Moonlight.

    ’T were vain to tell thee all I feel,
  Or say for thee I’d die.
Ah, well-a-day, the sweetest melody
Could never, never say, one half my love for thee.
          ’T were vain to tell.
