Dreamland Far Away
Music from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House Books
Lyrics by George Birdseye
A beautiful castle I've built for thee
In dreamland far away
And there, gentle darling, come dwell with me
Where love alone has sway
Oh, sweet will be our blisses
Oh, rare will be our blisses!
We'll tell our time by the lover's chime
That strikes the hour with kisses
No sorrow shall enter our castle walls
For joy shall guard the door
No word shall be spoken that ever recalls
The cares we know before
Then let us enjoy every blissful hour!
Too soon our dreams will break
Alas, that we never may have the pow'r
To live them when we wake!
From These Happy Golden Years
