Lyrics Of Sunshine and Shadow (1901)
First published by The Century Company
I did not know that life could be so sweet,
I did not know the hours could speed so
Till I knew you, and life was sweet again.
The days grew brief with love and lack of
I was slave a few short days ago,
The powers of Kings and Princes now I know;
I would not be again in bondage, save
I had your smile, the liberty I crave.
