My sister Victoria Melfi often surprises me with her ability to a render imaginative melodies. In this offering recorded on her smart phone(!) in one sitting - she soulfully seems to channel poet, Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1815-1919)spontaneously in one take, opening the book and selecting the poem! I present it as it was given.
One moment alone in the garden,Under the August skies;
The moon had gone but the stars shone on,Shone like your beautiful eyes.
Away from the glitter and gaslight,Alone in the garden there,While the mirth of the throng, in laugh and song,
Floated out on the air.
You looked down through the starlight,And I looked up at you;And a feeling came that I could not name,Something strange and new.
Friends of a few weeks only,
Why should it give me pain,To know you would go on the morrow,And would not come again?
