I will twine with the rings of my raven black hair
the roses so red and the lilies so fair
and the myrtle so bright with the emerald dew
the pale oleander and iris so blue
I will sing, I will dance and my life shall be gay
I will charm every heart in the crowd I survey
when I woke from my dream and my idols were clay
all portions of love had all flown away
Oh he taught me to taught me to love him and promised to love
and to cherish me over all others above
how my heart is now wonderin', n0 misery can tell
he left with no warning, no words of farewell
well he promised to love me and called me his flower
that was blooming to cheer him thru life's dreary hour
now I long to see him regret the dark hour
he's gone and neglected this pale wildwood flower
