I

(Writer unknown)

 I heard a sickle sighing,
Yea, sighing through the corn,
 I heard a maiden crying
That was for love forlorn.

 "Give over, love, give over!
I care not what may pass,
 For in the green, green clover
I've found another lass."

 "If in the green, green clover
The while I stand apart
 You've found another lover
I well may break my heart."
