Variant Title(s): Bid Adieu To Maidenhood;bid Adieu To Girlish Ways
Subject(s): Love

Bid adieu, adieu, adieu,

Bid adieu to girlish days,

Happy Love is come to woo

Thee and woo thy girlish ways -- -

The zone that doth become thee fair,
The snood upon thy yellow hair,

When thou hast heard his name upon

The bugles of the cherubim

Begin thou softly to unzone

Thy girlish bosom unto him

And softly to undo the snood
That is the sign of maidenhood.
