THE fennels said, "He is so fond,
You hold his foolish heart in bond;
Make ready for his home-coming."
The fennels tell a guilesome thing.
(May God have pity on my soul!)

The daisies said, "O! prithee say
Why did you give your heart away
For his that's old in trespassing?"
Too late, too late your questioning.
(May God have pity on my soul!)

The sages said, "Wait not your swain
Who long in other arms hath lain."
O Sages, your ill-boding leaf
I'll braid about my brow for grief.
(May God have pity on my soul!)
