Artist's Description

Carnation in a blue glass of water…keeping alive a beautiful memory.

After the ball is over
After the break of morn
After the dancers’ leaving
After the stars are gone
Many a heart is aching
If you could read them all
Many the hopes that have vanished
After the ball

“Bright lights were flashing in the grand ballroom
Softly the music, playing sweet tunes
There came my sweetheart, my love, my own
‘I wish some water, leave me alone’
When I returned, dear, there stood a man
Kissing my sweetheart, as lovers can
Down fell the glass, pet, broken, that’s all
Just as my heart was, after the ball”

Excerpt from an old ballad by Charles K Harris
