1  While walking near a river clear
One morning sweet in May,
When hawthorn trees perfumed the breeze,
And birds sang on each spray;
A maiden fair with golden hair,
By chance that way did pass;
Her queenly grace and lovely face,
No goddess could surpass.

2  Like stars at night, her eyes shine bright,
And with love's fire did glow,
A rosy blush her cheeks did flush,
Her neck was white as snow,
A coral beam each lip did seem,
Her teeth were rows of pearl;
And fresh and bright as morning light
Appeared this charming girl.

3  At her I gazed, I was amazed,
Her beauty was so rare,
And with love sweet my heart did beat
For this dear maid so fair.
I told her this and oh! what bliss
Into my soul did glide;
With gentle sighs and downcast eyes,
She said she'd be my bride.
