Wild Wood Flower
O, I’ll pine with my mangels and waving black hair.
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair.
And the mortal so bright with emerald I’ll view The pale and the leader and eyes looked like blue.
I will dance, I will sing, and my lot shall be gay.
I will charm every heart in his crown I will sway.
When I awoke from my dreaming my idol was clay A fortune of love had all flown away.
0, he taught me to love him and promised to love And to cherish me over all others above.
How my heart is now wandering no misery can tell He's left no warnings, no words of farewell.
O, he taught me to love him and called me his flower That's blooming to cheer him through lifes dreary hour.
O, I long to see him and regret the dark hour,
He's the one that selected this pale wild-wood flower.
