DOWN AMONG DE CANE-BRAKES
3 Yes, I was free from care; All the bright summer there; Dark days to me were fair— Down among the cane-brakes. 3 There lived my mother dear, (Gone from this world, I fear), There rang our voices clear, Down among the cane-brakes.
4 There lived a lovely one, Who like the rest has gone,— She might have been my own, Down among the cane-brakes.
6 Long years have glided by,
Since then I breathed each sigh.— May I return to die; Down among the cane-brakes.
