MEADOWSWEET

 

 

Meadowsweet, my gentle maiden,

I recall, when we did meet,

That the evening air was laden

With the scent of meadowsweet.

 

Refrain:

Meadowsweet, your gentle fragrance,

Lies like balm upon my mind.

Meadowsweet, alas my flower

Perished in the bitter wind

 

All the fields were filled with flowers;

I thought I could pick and choose,

Summer days would last forever,

I was young and could not lose.

 

Refrain:

Meadowsweet, your gentle fragrance etc

 

I walked down one winter evening

To the place where we did meet;

Gone were all the summer flowers.

Gone forever, Meadowsweet.

 

Refrain:

Meadowsweet, your gentle fragrance etc

 

Meadowsweet, my gentle maiden,

I recall, when we did meet,

That the evening air was laden

With the scent of meadowsweet.
