LYRICS

Dark is the iris meadow, 
Dark is the ivory tower, 
And lightly the young moth’s shadow 
Sleeps on the passion-flower.

Gone are our day’s red roses. 
So lovely and lost and few, 
But the first star uncloses 
A silver bud in the blue. 

Night, and a flame in the embers 
Where the seal of the years was set,– 
When the almond-bough remembers 
How shall my heart forget? 

 
text from (“Serenade” by Marjorie Pickthal)
