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!
