Richard.
The battle's roar is over,
O my love!
Embrace thy tender lover,
O my love!
From tempests' welter,
From war's alarms,
O give me shelter
Within those arms!
O give me shelter
Within those arms!
Thy smile alluring,
All heart-ache curing,
Gives peace enduring,
O my love!
O my love!

Rose.
If heart both true and tender,
O my love!
A life-love can engender,
O my love!
A truce to sighing
And tears of brine,
For joy undying
Shall aye be mine,
For joy undying
Shall aye be mine,
Both.
And thou and I, love,
Shall live and die, love,
Without a sigh, love,
Without a sigh,
My own, my love!
And thou and I, love,
Shall live and die, love,
Without a sigh, love,
My own, my love!
Richard (Charles Goulding) and
Rose (Elsie Griffin) (1926)
