Song.—this Mournful Heart
by Louisa Stuart Costello
Che va di ramo in ramo
Cantado; io amo; io amo.
This mournful heart can dream of nought but thee,
As with slow steps among these shades I move,
And hear the nightingale from tree to tree
Sighing "I love! I love!"
This mournful heart wakes to one thought alone
That still our fatal parting will renew,
To hear that bird when Spring's last eve is gone
Sighing "Adieu! Adieu!"
