Beautiful shining leaf of green,
Why were you plucked from the parent vine?
Only for sorrow and care I ween.
Only to break her heart and mine,
Only to break her heart and mine.

Soft as the plume of a cooing dove,
Innocent cause of all her grief;
Why were you sent as a pledge of love,
Beautiful, beautiful ivy leaf?

Beautiful leaf, if you only knew
How light her heart was before you came,
You'd hide away from the morning dew,
And in the sunlight blush with shame,
And in the sunlight blush with shame.

Ah! little she thought in her perfect bliss,
That her dream of love would be so brief,
AŽ she welcomed you with a holy kiss,
Beautiful, beautiful ivy leaf.
