[Through composed]
Forget thee! forget thee! ah my heart,
how vain Thus wildly to have spoken,
The brightest link in Mem'ry's chain
May not be rudely broken,

The spell of thy dark lustrous eyes,
Is in my spirit yet,
Thy voice of deep ton'd melody
I never can forget,

Thy voice of deep fond melody
I never never can forget.
