8.     They lighted down to take a drink,
And the water was a crimson stain ; It was crimson-stained by her truelove's blood, And she saw that he was slain.
9.     He died ere the midnight bell it tolled,
And ere the dawn of day Lady Margaret died for her truelove bold, And by his side she lay.
10. They buried them both in the cold, cold tomb; The grave it was deep, so deep; And a twin briar rose, twining high overhead, Only marks where these true lovers sleep.
"Lady Margaret." Practically identical with A. Contributed by Mrs. Helen B. Little, of Knoxville, Iowa. June 17, 1935.
