Mid-Winter Reverie - Stardust

16 January 2024

Stardust

by Hoagy Carmichael


Sometimes I wonder

why

I spend

the lonely night

 

dreaming of a song

 

The melody

haunts my reverie

and I am once again

with you

 

When our love was new

 

and each kiss

an inspiration


Ah, but that was long ago

 

Now my consolation

is in the stardust

of a song

 

Beside the garden wall

when stars are bright

 

you are in my arms

The nightingale

tells his fairy tale

of paradise

where

roses grew


Though I dream in vain

 

in my heart

it will remain

 

my stardust melody

 

the memory of love’s

refrain

 

Though I dream in vain


in my heart

 

it will remain

 

my stardust melody

 

the memory

 

of love’s refrain.
