Songs That Every Child Should Know 89
Ah! dearest, couldst thou but swim it,
Then swim it across to me. Three tapers I '11 set burning, I : To be a guide to thee. : I
A faithless nun o'erheard it,
Who made to be asleep, And out she put those tapers; I : The youth was drowned deep: :
Then into her arms she took him,
His red lips kissed she then, And said, " Could these lips but answer, I : My heart would be whole again." : I
Then round her she flung her mantle
And leaped into the sea. " Good-bye, my father and mother, I : Ye '11 ne'er again see me." : I
Then bells began a-ringing,
Then was there fear and dread; Here lie two royal children, I: And both of them are dead. :j |j
