    I will twine, I will mingle my raven black hair
    With the roses so red and the lilies so fair
    And the myrtle so bright with it's emerald hue
    The pale emanita and the hyssop so blue

    I will dance, I will sing and my laugh shall be gay
    I will charm every heart, in his crown I will sway
    I woke from my dreaming, my idol was clay
    All portions of loving had all flown away

    But he taught me to love him and promised to love
    And to cherish me over all others above
    My poor heart is wondering no misery can tell
    He left with no warning, no word of farewell

    Well you told me you love me and called me your flower
    That was blooming to cheer you through life's dreary hour
    I live to see him regret life's dark hour
    He's gone and neglected this pale wildwood flower
