Arranged by Fred. Simonson.

Down by a shady brook, by a swift running stream,
Sat a maid And her lover, both happy as a dream.
All nature seemed at rest, as the birds sang their lay,
He told her that he loved her, called her his Queen of Mar.
Neither in their trysting, saw a maiden fall,
A girl who also loved him, loved him the best of all.
"I love you best of all, better than all this world."
Those were the words were spoken, those were the words she heard.
"With your dear arms about me, I care not what befalls,
Surely, dear, you will not doubt me, I love you best of all."

she wandered from her home, this maiden all forlorn,
In her heart kept the secret of a love left unborn,
She came upon these lovers, unconscious of her woe,
And heard him say "I love you," just as she turned to go.
She would keep her secret, which no time could pall,
Her heart was almost breaking, she loved in spite of all.
"I love you best of all," etc.

Long, weary days have passed to the sweet little maid,
Who has had manly suitors, but to all she says nay,
No one else will she wed. she knows her heart is gone
To one who will never love her, he weds to-morrow morn.
Seated in the arbor his words she now recalls.
Yet in her heart she loves him, loves him in spite of all.
