Breirster: Ballads and Songs of Indiana 197
Then seven long months I served the king,
And in seven weeks more I returned home again.
When I got back, my arms they shone so bright
I had a ready thought of my own heart's delight.
Then to her father straightway did I go
To see if my love remained yet or no; Her mother answered from her window as she made me thus reply: "My daughter loved thee dearly, and for thy sake did die."
Then, O, I was struck like one that was slain;
The tears from my eyes fell like showers of rain. No, never nevermore would I see my love again!
No, never nevermore would I see my love again!
