So, we’ll go no more a’roving so late into the night

Though the heat be still as loving, and the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath and the soul wears out the breast

And the heart must pause to breath and love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving and the days return too soon

Yet we’ll go no more a’roving by the light of the shining moon.
