. ILLUSTRATING SHAKESPEARE.
207
" My mother had a maid call'd Barbara; She was in love ; and he she lov'd prov'd mad, And did forsake her: she had a song of Willow ,-And old thing 'twas, but it express'd her fortune, And she died singing it. That song to-night Will not go from my mind; I have much to do, But to go hang my head all at one side, And sing it like poor Barbara."
