TENDER you were and shy, wind of the South.
You blew me kisses from my lover's mouth;
With your caressing touch upon my cheek
I closed my eyes, and thought I heard him speak.

Wind of the South, cruel you are and bold,
In your wild cries my wretchedness is told;
Beyond the frozen sails and icy spars
My love is dead, beneath the Southern stars.
