임형주 The sally garden

DOWN by the salley gardens my love and I did meet;
She passed the salley gardens with little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy. as the leaves grow on the tree;
But I. being young and foolish. with her would not agree.
In a field by the river my love and I did stand.
And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand.
She bid me take life easy. as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish. and now am full of tears.
