Pierrot stands in the garden 

Beneath a waning moon, 

And on his lute he fashions 

A fragile silver tune.  


Pierrot plays in the garden, 

He thinks he plays for me, 

But I am quite forgotten 

Under the cherry tree.  


Pierrot plays in the garden, 

And all the roses know 

That Pierrot loves his music, — 

But I love Pierrot.
