"Promise to meet me," be fondly said,
"For I've something to whisper, dear!"
The maiden, so prettily, hung her head,
While blushing; his message to hear.
"Wherever you please," rosy lips replied,
"Whatever the time of the day!"
He turned, with a sign, and he bade her good-bye,
But did not forget to say :

Don't forget your promise, keep it faithfully,
I'll he waiting, lonely, your bright eyes to see;
By the rippling waters, when the sun has set,
Don't forget your promise, don't forget!

What the sweet story he told her there,
Was a secret between the two!
He gave her the love of his heart to share,
She gave him her promise so true.
The years they have come, and the years have gone,
But joy wings each hour since they wed;
Ah! well you may guess they have reason to blest
That day when he fondly said:- Chorus.
