How Should I Your True Love Know

How should I your true love know
From another one?
By his cockle hat and staff
And his sandal shoon.

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.

Note: The first of Shakespeare's Ophelia's "Mad Songs", Hamlet,
     Act IV Scene 5.
Recorded by The Silly Sisters (Prior & Tabor) on No More To the Dance
