The poignant words of The Last Rose of Summer, by Thomas Moore, match this song's mournful, drooping melody. After a temporarily uplifting modulation for the third verse, where the men of the choir echo the melody two measures behind, the arrangement ends as it began---in a solitary mood, with an empty, bare fifth.
