WHEN I went down the autumn lane
My heart was free from fear and pain,
I whistled lightly as I passed
The spot where pulses once ran fast,
Nor thought me that my head should whirl
Again at sight of any girl,
Since now that no love fettered me
I felt I should be ever free;
So down the brush-banked autumn lane
I laughed at former fears and pain.

When I came out the autumn lane
I knew I should not laugh again,
For in my lightsome, leaf-strewn path
Cupid in ambush lay in wrath,
And scarce my heart could utter cry,
He pierced it through, and I shall die,
For when one's heart is thus waylaid
There is no cure but shroud and spade —
When I came out the autumn lane
I knew I should not laugh again.
