I wonder if Love is a rose, A beautiful blossom divine, If Love is a rose, may he come And lie on this sad heart of mine. I wonder if Love is a bird With a melody tender and strong, If Love is a bird, may he come And sing in my garden his song. I wonder if Love is a dream, So steadfast, so wondrous, so true, That floods v'ry day with fair sunshine and hangs Golden stars ev'ry night in the blue; Ah! If Love is a dream, he has come, For to-night I am dreaming of you!
