Henry's cottage-maid

henry's cottage maid.

AH where can fly my soul's true love?
Sad I wander this lone grove;
Sighs and tears for him I shed,
Henry is from Laura fled
Thy love to me thou didst impart,
Thy love soon won my virgin heart;
But dearest Henry thou'st betray'd
Thy love with thy poor cottage-maid.

Thro' the vale my grief appears,
Sighing sae with pearly tears:
Oft thy image is my theme,
As I wander on thy green:
See from my cheek the colour flies,
And love's sweet hope within me flies;
For oh! dear Henry, thou'st betray'd
Thy love with thy poor village-maid
