Yes, I remember
Language: English 
Yes, I remember the spot so well,
where chestnuts bloom in a far off dell.
May was busy thro' all the hours
flinging her sunshine, wreathing her flow'rs,
Touching all hearts with witching spell!
Yes, I remember so well, so well!

Promise of beauty and peace of love
shone o'er the earth and the sky above.
Hours like minutes flow softly by;
ah, how happy were you and I!
Joy of that time what tongue may tell?
Yes, I remember so well, so well!
