chorus 1 There was a time when the desert was in bloom
  Moonlight shone on Apache Plume
  We fell in love beneath the strawberry moon
  There was a time when the desert was in bloom
 
1.
Hand in hand, we picked a careful way
  Through prickly pear and yellow blossom sage
  You kissed me there, underneath the laughing stars
  And a wonderland of sand and stone was ours
 
chorus 1  
 
2.
The summer sun grew too hot to bear
  I closed my eyes to protect them from the glare
  The blossoms died, vanished in the shifting sands
  Like the love you gave me vanished from my hands
 
chorus 2 There was a time when the desert was in bloom
  Moonlight shone on Apache Plume
  The cactus wren sings a mournful tune
  There was a time when the desert was in bloom
 
chorus 1  
   
coda
There was a time when the desert was in bloom

Award:
 

"I went to a garage sale on Apache Plume Street and started playing with the soft rhyme: Plume and moon. I wanted to write a moon-June-spoon song without using any of those words. The 'strawberry moon' is the first moon in June. So, I was able to skip 'June' and 'spoon'." — San
