Two roses did she give me,
Two roses blushing red,
Her cheeks as brightly glowing.
She lingered, loath to leave me,
When I from her was going,
And bitter tears were shed.
"Dearest heart, now cease from grieving,
True love will never fail.
Like tender roses dying."
And then, mine own one leaving,
I saw, the snow outvieing,
Her lovely face grow pale.
But as roses, quickly fading,
Are quickly green once more,
Her cheeks full soon were glowing,
And that dear face o'ershading,
Where roses fair were blowing,
A myrtle wreath she wore.
