No. 4 - Song - Dulcie - "The Moon of May."

MIDI File

Dulcie: When sun and showers awake the flowers
To venture forth,
And birds go winging their way and singing
From South to North.
My heart goes after the love and laughter
Of May-time's boon,
That May of roses whose ring encloses
Our honeymoon! Ah! Ah!
Come back, my May-time,
Bringing the time of old
When for us two heavens were blue,
Ev'ry hour was gold.
Dear dawn of daytime,
Noon in the woodland way.
Set of the sun, leaving us one
Under the moon of May!
   
  Again for lovers the primrose covers
The meadow vales,
And leaves are thrilling to hear the trilling
Of nightingales!
But May must waken to me forsaken
Of all her light,
The love-light tender that lent a splendour
To day and night! Ah! Ah!
Come back, my May-time,
Bringing the time of old
When for us two heavens were blue,
Ev'ry hour was gold.
Dear dawn of daytime,
Noon in the woodland way.
Set of the sun, leaving us one
Under the moon of May!
Under the moon!
Under the moon!
Under the moon of May, of May!
