THRO' the forest deep comes a maiden fair,
Bright as the morning, rosy as dawn,
Thoughtless and happy and free from care.

Her eyes are clear as the azure air,
Light is her tread as the startled fawn,
Thro' the forest deep comes a maiden fair.

All lies joyless and chill and bare,
Save in the path where she has gone,
Thoughtless and happy and free from care.

Sparkling and glinting her sun-kissed hair
Ripples about her in waves of tawn,
Thro' the forest deep comes a maiden fair.

Joyous and lovely beyond compare,
Brightness onward with her is dawn,
Thoughtless and happy and free from care.

Roaming about in the sun's bright glare,
By limpid stream, o'er velvety lawn,
Thro' the forest deep comes a maiden fair,
Thoughtless and happy and free from care.
