WADE, J. Augustine

Meet Me By Moonlight

Meet me by moonlight alone,

And then, I will tell you a tale,

Must be told by the moonlight alone.

In the grove at the end of the vale;

You must promise to come, for I said

I would show the nightflowers their Queen.

Nay, turn not away thy sweet head,

’Tis the loveliest ever was seen.

Oh! meet me by moonlight alone,

Meet me by moonlight alone.

Daylight may do for the gay,

The thoughtless, the heartless, the free;

But there’s something about the moon’s ray,

That is sweeter to you and to me.

Oh! remember be sure to be there,

For though dearly a moonlight I prize,

I care not for all in the air,

If I want the sweet light of your eyes.

So meet me by moonlight alone,

Meet me by moonlight alone.
