W:My young love said to me: "My mother won't mind
W:And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind".
W:And she stepped away from me and this she did say:
W:"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."
W:
W:She stepped away from me and she moved through the fair
W:And fondly I watched her move here and move there
W:As she went her way homeward with one star awake
W:As the swan in the evening moves over the lake.
W:
W:The people were saying no two e'er were wed
W:But one has a sorrow that never was said
W:And she smiled as she passed me with her goods and her gear
W:And that was the last that I saw of my dear.
W:
W:I dreamt it last night that my true love came in
W:So softly she entered that her feet made no din
W:And she came close beside me and this she did say:
W:"It will not be long, love, till our wedding day."
