            FAIRIES LOVE SONG            
        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
