Pale moon light! A wondrous night!
My fancy takes its flight to Rainbow Isle;
Swaying trees, A truant breeze
All bring you to me just for a while.
Cleo, I see only you,
And the dream makes me lonesome and blue,
Brings back that moment divine
When I fancied your heart answered mine;
Cleo, ‘twill be only you
And I’d give all this world if you knew,
Just how I’m yearning,
And wait your returning
Come back to me, My Cleo, do!
Some June night Love’s magic light
May guide your boat aright to Rainbow Isle;
O’er the sea of memory
Sometime, in the golden Afterwhile.
