Songs That Every Child Should Know 165
' Ho! Mistress, how goes it for ale and wine ? : And where 's that pretty wench of thine? " :||
My wine is good, my ale is clear, : My daughter is lying upon her bier." : I
Then to the chamber she led them back, : And there she lay in her coffin black. : I
The first one he threw the shroud aside, : And said, as he gazed at her, sad-eyed, : II
" My beauty, and wert thou not dead and gone, : I swear I should love thee from this day on." : I
The second, he covered the maiden's face, : And turned him away and wept a space. :f|
" That thou art lying upon thy bier, : When I have loved thee this many a year \" : |
The third again threw off her veil, : And kissed her lips that were dead and pale:: 11
" I always loved thee, I love thee still, : Forever and ever I always will." :JJ
