As She Moved

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 laid her hands on me, and this she did say:
“It will not be long, Love, ‘til our wedding day.”

She stepped away from me, and she moved through the fair,
and fondly I watched her move here and move there.
And she went her way homeward, with one star awake,
as the swan in the evening, moves over the lake.

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

Last night she came to me, my true love came in.
She came in so softly, her feet made no din.
And she laid her hands on me, and this she did say:
“It will not be long, Love, ‘til our wedding day.”
