And therefore take the present time,
With a hey, with a ho, with a hey nonino,
For love is crowned with the prime In spring time, &c.
Between the acres of the rye,
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino, These pretty country folks would lie,
In spring time, &c.
This carol they began that hour,
With a hey and a ho, and a hey nonino,
How that life was but a flower In spring time, &c.
Chappell. The Words from Shakespeare's As you like it.
Tune from a MS. in the Advocates' Library, Edinburgh.
XXIV
HOW SHOULD I YOUR TRUE LOVE KNOW
He is dead, and gone, lady,
He is dead and gone! At his head a grass-green turf,
At his heels a stone.
White his shroud as the mountain snow,
Larded with sweet flowers, Which bewept to the grave did not go,
With true-love showers.
Words from Shakespeare's Hamlet.
