the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a watered shoot;
And all the winds go sighing,
For sweet things dying.
She gave up beauty in her tender youth,
Gave all her hope and joy and pleasant ways;
I might show facts as plain as day:
But, since your eyes are blind, you'd say,
"Where? What?" and turn away.
Yet come to me in dreams that I may live
My very life again though cold in death:
As a tree my sin stands
To darken all lands;
Death is the fruit it bore.
And my eyes are blue;
So ferry me across the water,
"Ferry me across the water,
Do, boatman, do."
"If you've a penny in your purse
I'll ferry you."
