MARIAN; AN OPERETTA: SONG (1), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: By the osiers so dank
Last Line: Alas! Must I wear the green willow?
Subject(s): Clothing & Dress


By the osiers so dank,
As we sat on the bank,
And look'd at the swell of the billow,
This chaplet he wove
As a token of love;
Alas! 't was the branch of the willow.

How sad all the day
Through the meadows I stray,
And rest flies at night from my pillow!
The garland I wore
From my ringlets I tore,
Alas! must I wear the green willow?
