My young love said to me,
My mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you
For your lack of kind.
And she stepped away from me
And this she did say:
It will not be long, Love,
Till our wedding day.

She stepped away from me
As she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Go here and go there.
And then she made her way homeward,
With one star awake,
As the swan in the evening
Moved over the lake.

The people were saying,
No two were e'er wed
But one has a sorrow
That never was said.
And I smiled as she passed
With her goods and her gear,
But that was the last
That I saw of my dear

I dreamt it last night that
My own love came in.
So softly she entered,
Her feet made no din.
Then she came close beside me,
And this she did say:
It will not be long, love,
'Til our wedding day.
