                  *                     
                                        
           FAIRIES LOVE SONG            
                        -Anonymous      
                                        
       Why should I sit and sigh        
       Broo and bracken, broo and bracken
       Why should I sit and sigh        
       All alone and weary              
                                        
       When I see the plover rising     
       Or the curlew wheeling           
       It's then I'll court my mortal lover
       Back to me is stealing           
                                        
       When the moon begins her waning  
       I sit by the water               
       Where a man born of the sunlight 
       Loved the Faerie's daughter      
                                        
       Oh, but there is something wanting
       O but I am weary                 
       Coming blithe, now bonny treads he
       O'er the knolls to cheer me      
                                        
                      *
