            WILDWOOD FLOWER         Miscellaneous

I will twine and will mingle my waving black hair 
With the roses so red and the lilies so fair.
The myrtle so green of an emerald hue
The pale emanita and islip so blue.

Oh he promised to love me, he promised to love
And to cherish me always all others above.
I woke from my dream and my idol was  clay
My passion for loving had vanished away.

Oh he taught me to love him, he called me his flower
A blossom to cheer him through life's weary hour
But now he is gone and left me alone
The wild flowers to weep and the wild birds to mourn

I'll dance and I'll sing and my life shall be gay
I'll charm every heart in the crowd I survey
Though my heart now is breaking he shall never know
How his name makes me tremble, my pale cheeks glow.

I'll dance and I'll sing and my heart will be gay
I'll banish this weeping drive troubles away
I'll live yet to see him regret this dark hour
When he won and neglected this frail wildwood flower.
