THE VILLAGE MAIDEN
2 But summer-joys have -faded
And summer hopes have flown; Her brow with grief is shaded,
Her happy smiles are gone; Yet why her heart is laden, l
Not one, alas! 'can say, Who saw the village maiden
Upon her wedding day.
3 -The village bells are ringing,
But hark, how sad and slow: The village choir is singing
A requiem soft and 4ow; And all with sorrow laden
Their tearful tribute pay Who saw the village maiden
Upon her wedding day.
