I was a maiden fair and fond, Smiling, singing all the day, ’Til Maguire with looks of fire He stole my heart away. The gard’ner’s son, as he stood by, Blossoms four he gave to me, The pink, the rue, the violet blue, And the red rose tree.
‘Lass, for your lips the sweet clove pink, For your eyes the violets blue, The rose to speak your damask cheek, For memory the rue.’ Oh, but my love at first was fond; Now, alas, he’s turn’d untrue, My rose and pink and violet shrink, But my tears keep fresh the rue.
