222 THE SUFFOLK MIRACLE.
Her father to the father went
Of the deceased, with full intent w
To tell him what his daughter said;
So both came back unto this maid.
They ask'd her, and she still did say 'Twas he that then brought her away; "Which when they heard they were amazed, as And on each other strangely gazed.
A handkerchief she said she tied
About his head, and that they tried;
The sexton they did speak unto,
That he the grave would then undo. 100
Affrighted then they,did behold
His body turning into mould,
And though he had a month been dead,
This handkerchief was about his head.
This thing unto her then they told, ioj
And the whole truth they did unfold ;
She was thereat so terrified
And grieved, that she quickly died.
Part not true love, you rich men, then ; But, if they be right honesfmen no
Your daughters love, give them their way, For force oft breeds their lives decay.
