Oh fair maiden bright and true,
Don’t you know my love for you?
How I long for your hand to hold,
To live together and grow old.
Oh fair maiden of summer’s noon
Don’t you know what I would do?
I would love you tell eternity’s end,
And gravities pull ceased to bend.
Oh of fairer maiden there is none,
My love for you is the sun,
It burns my heart in its flame,
And consumes me at your name.
Oh fair maiden I wish you knew
How much I truly love you.
But alas I fear this dreadful turn:
My love for you wont be returned.
