DOLLY

King Rufus he did hunt the deer, With a hey ho, come and kiss me, Dolly! It was the spring-time of the year-- Hey ho, Dolly shut her eyes! King Rufus was a bully boy, He hunted all the day for joy, Sweet Dolly she was ever coy: And who would e'er be wise That looked in Dolly's eyes?

King Rufus he did have his day, With a hey ho, come and kiss me, Dolly! So get ye forth where dun deer play-- Hey ho, Dolly comes again! The greenwood is the place for me, For that is where the dun deer be, And who would stay at home, That might with Dolly roam? Sing hey ho, come and kiss me, Dolly!

LIFE'S SWEET WAGES

Who would lie down and close his eyes While yet the lark sings o'er the dale? Who would to Love make no replies, Nor drink the nut-brown ale, While throbs the pulse, and full's the purse And all the world's for sale?

Though wintry blasts may prove unkind, When winter's past we do forget; Love's breast in summer-time is kind, And all's well while life's with us yet. Hey ho, now the lark is mating-- Life's sweet wages are in waiting!

TO THE VALLEY

Come hither, oh come hither, There's a bride upon her bed; They have strewn her o'er with roses, There are roses 'neath her head: Life is love and tears and laughter, But the laughter it is dead-- Sing the way to the Valley, to the Valley- Hey, but the roses they are red!

THE LILY FLOWER Oh, love, it is a lily flower, (Sing, my captain, sing, my lady!) The sword shall cleave it, Life shall leave it-- Who shall know the hour? (Sing, my lady, still!)

LOVE IN HER COLD GRAVE LIES

Love in her cold grave lies, But that is not my love: My love hath constant eyes, My love her life doth prove; That love, the poorer, dies-- Ah, that is not my love!

Love in her cold grave lies, But she will wake again; With trembling feet will rise, Will call this love in vain, That she doth now despise Ah, love shall wake again!

GRANADA, GRANADA

Granada, Granada, thy gardens are gay, And bright are thy stars, the high stars above; But as flowers that fade and are grey, But as dusk at the end of the day Are ye to the light in the eyes of my love-- In the eyes, in the soul, of my love.

Granada, Granada, oh, when shall I see My love in thy garden, there waiting for me! Beloved, beloved, have pity and make Not the sun shut its eyes, its hot envious eyes; And the world in the darkness of night, Be debtor to thee for its light. Turn thy face, turn thy face from the skies To the love, to the pain in my eyes.

Granada, Granada, oh, when shall I see My love in thy garden, there waiting for me!

THE NEW APHRODITE

What though the gods of the eld be dead, Here are the mountains of azure and snow, Here are the valleys where loves are wed, And lilies in blow.

Here are the hands that are lucid, sweet, Wound at the wrist with an amber beading, Folds of the seafoam to cover the feet, Mortals misleading.

Down to the opaline lips of the sea Wander the lost ones, fallen but mighty, Stretching out hands, crying, "Turn unto me, O Aphrodite!"

See where they lift up their faces and scan, Over the wave-heaps, thy coming; despite thee, Thou canst not fetter the soul of a man, O Aphrodite!

Nay, but our bodies we bend, and we give All that the heart hath, loving, not knowing Whether the best is to die or to live, Coming or going.
