What pleasant dream may soothe my eyes
When autumn's breath may grace our days
Wondrous a dream in the blazing sunrise
That charms my heart in autumn's grace.
I've kissed a dream when I look into your eyes
That springs my face like vibrant flowers
In all the bright and sober hours
When the mortal breath of men may sigh.
Entranced within your loving eyes
While greyish skies grow young and fair
You threw your emerald eyes upon me
That you may arose this tender tear.
The eternal rose of love I've found
When all is lost and life is done
What perfect dream this life would crown
Dulce de las fuentes de mi corazón.
Your lingering scent bathes the empty spaces
When the silent pulse of morn would murmur
While melodies would draw its sweetest verses
To bless the earth on which you saunter.
Then the storming winds would pluck
The last of the fragrant roses
As to drift to you my dear beloved
When your gentle soul reposes.
Beneath a naked tree nodding in the winds
At the threshold of the withering buds
As bright as the rays on the trembling seas
Lapping in the mournful distance.
