Wildwood Flowers

Oh, I’ll twine with my mingles and waving black hair / With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
And the myrtle so bright with the emerald hue / The pale amanita and eyes look like blue
Oh I’ll dance, I will sing and my laugh shall be gay / I will charm every heart, in his crown I will sway
When I woke from my dreaming, my idols were clay / All portion of love had all flown away
Oh he taught me to love him and promised to love / And to cherish me over all others above
How my heart is now wond’ring no mis’ry can tell / He’s left me no warning, no words of farewell
Oh, he taught me to love him and called me his flow’rThat was blooming to cheer him through life’s dreary hour
Oh, I long to see him and regret the dark hour / He’s gone and neglected this pale wildwood flow’r
