Barry Oremland later wrote me that this was in fact a recording by Joan Baez. The song appeared as the finale on the album "JOAN BAEZ Vol. 2" [Vanguard VRS-9094]; liner note by "M.S." reads as follows:
His eyes kissed mine
I saw the love in them shine
A rainbow brightened my window
Such love divine
And now he's gone
Like a dream that melts with the dawn
His memory stays locked in my heartstrings
He was ne'er mine
The joys of love are but a moment long,
the pain of love endures the whole life long.
Your eyes kissed mine, I saw the love in them shine,
you brought me heaven right then when your eyes kissed mine.
My love loves me, and all the wonders I see,
a rainbow shines in my window, my love loves me.
And now he is gone, like a dream that fades into dawn,
but the words stay locked in my heart-strings, "My love loves me".
