83—I DREAMT THAT I DWELT IN MARBLE HALLS (The Bohemian Girl)

I dreamt that I dwelt in marble halls, With vassals and serfs at my side,
And of all who assembled within those walls, that I was the hope and the pride.
I had riches too great to count—could boast of a high ancestral name—
But I also dreamt, which pleas'd me most,
That you loved me still the same, That you loved me still the same.
That you loved me, you loved me still the same.

I dreamt that suitors sought my handThat knights, upon bended knee
And with vows no maiden heart could with-stand, They pledged their faith to me.
And I dreamt that one of that noble host Came forth my hand to claim,
But I also dreamt, which charm'd me most
That you loved me still the same, That you loved me, you loved me still the same, That you loved me you loved me still the same.
