W: Verse 2.
W: But where is my love gone with his cheeks like roses?

W: Strange news flies up and down that my love is married.
W: I wish them both much joy although they cannot hear me.
W: And may God reward him well for the slighting of me.
W: Verse 4.
W: Don’t you remember when you lay beside me?
W: And you said you’d marry me and not deny me?
W: If I said I’d marry you it was only for to try you,
W: So bring your witness love and I’ll not deny you.
W: Verse 5
W: No, witness have I none save God Almighty,
W: And may he reward you well for the slighting of me.
W: Her cheeks grew pale and wan it made her poor heart tremble,
W: To think she loved that one and he proved deceitful.
