Unhappy Love                           61
They earnesdy made this inquiry, "What makes you look so mournfully?"
16    "You are the cause of this my mourning, And do not think I'll conceal the thing; But that although you are my brothers, For being cruel you both shall swing."
17    Then to avoid this bloody slaughter These villains did on shipboard go. But oh, believe me, on the morrow The bitter storms and winds did blow.
18    As though such crimes must still be punished By angry winds and dashing waves,
It blew off both these bloody murderers, And the sea became their final graves.
