Song—My Love is Fairer than the Tassled Corn

SONG

My love is fairer than the tasseled corn.

My love is fairer than the tasseled corn
 That matches with its gold the golden day;
My love is sweeter than the breath of morn
 Fragrant with new-mown hay.
There 's nothing dearer or more tender,
And day by day the Graces lend her
A smile, a tear, to bind the heart
 And keep it hers alway!
