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
