Review

October, 19th 2017
Renée Fleming is an opera singer and has done this song in this genre. Her full lyric soprano voice is mesmerizing. And in every other sense, she is an extremely prominent singer, whose active years span from 1978 until now, and even she has been awarded by President Obama.
In this song, she tells about a rose flower that was left to bloom alone as all her companions have already finished blossoming, faded away and gone. She asks herself a question, what will be after the friendship is gone the same as these scentless flowers that lie in the garden? What will happen to the world after we are gone? Who’ll take over the things?

The Last Rose of Summer Song Lyrics


'Tis the last rose of summer left blooming alone
All her lovely companions are faded and gone
No flower of her kindred, no rosebud is nigh
To reflect back her blushes and give sigh for sigh
I'll not leave thee, thou lone one, to pine on the stem
Since the lovely are sleeping, go sleep thou with them
Thus kindly I scatter thy leaves o'er the bed
Where thy mates of the garden lie scentless and dead
So soon may I follow when friendships decay
And from love's shining circle the gems drop away
When true hearts lie withered and fond ones are flown
Oh who would inhabit this bleak world alone?
This bleak world alone
