Sweet was the morning, and bright was the sunshine,
Merrily home from the field was I going;
When mother opened the window and asked me;
"Damp is thy hair; pray what hast thou been doing?"
I was frightened, oh, so frightened,
Then I stammered without thinking;
"I wet my hair while drinking!"
"Don't tell story,
Wert thou going just to drink, my daughter?
At daybreak, too!
Say, who drew for thee the water?
Ah! well, mother darling,
And I love him dearly,
He begged so hard to see me bright and early,
And he kept me talking,
all his love recalling,
And somehow, on my hair and cheek,
I felt jis teardrops falling.
