This lonely woodland way,
O gallant stranger, I traverse night and day
And fear no danger! I have no jealous spouse, I've changed no lover's vows, Heart whole among the boughs
I'm still a ranger.
Those eyes of haunting blue,
That voice's cadence The long ago renew
By memory's aidance.
Before I sailed the sea,
Were none so dear to me
In childhood's joyous glee,
O flower of maidens 1
4-Your words are waking now
Faint recollection Of many a childish vow
Of frank affection ; And since you fondly fear To leave me lonely here, From dangerous men and deer
Be my protection !
H. 4S68.
