Near the lake where droop'd the willow, Long time ago!
Where the rock threw back the billow Brighter than snow;
Mingled were our hearts forever!Long time ago!
Can I now forget her? Never! No! Lost one, no!
To her grave these tears are given, Ever to flow!
She's the star I miss'd from heaven, Long time ago!
